Take a moment to reflect on your domestic situation since 2020 and realize that few things matter more than the spaces you inhabit and operate in. Our modern times have made it clear that the house is not just a home, but has the potential to be an office, a gym, a studio, a playground, a community. Accordingly, contemporary housing must be, above all else, crafted with consciousness in mind. Consciousness of the land it occupies, the materials it is made up of and of the lives that will occupy it throughout its lifetime. In short, a consciousness of temporality. The residential projects showcased in this book demonstrate such adaptability through a number of strategies – including modularity, frugality, mobility, hybridity and communality – to achieve resilient spaces that will stand the test of our times and inspire a new housing mandate.
This volume builds upon and beyond the descriptive models of past Frame books, offering, in addition, perceptive criticality and visionary insights from a multitude of designers from around the world, functioning as a comprehensive guide and quintessential reference for design enthusiasts and professionals passionate about approaching residential design with radical consciousness.
