Container Paradigm : Designing structures for the future lifestyle
Abstract: In a world that is becoming more and more complex with each passing year, a world where we encounter problems with home availability. This isa world where we need better temporary alternatives that are affordable. Aworld in which we need better usage of ‘space’. This master’s thesis subject is about the possibilities of a more simpler andmore space efficient lifestyle. A ‘home’ with which we can travel anywhere,similar to a snail or hermit crab. This lifestyle has no boundaries and wouldbe available to everyone as a choice. Similar to the “Plug-in” city by Archigram,we would be capable to move our homes and connect them. With this thesis I investigate how we can both have an opportunity tolower our ecological footprint and at the same time create a ‘home’ that cansupport even the financially troubled. In a way, it is an investigation how ahouse can become more opensource to everybody as a concept.
