In the report we set out our visions on the future of living, the rise of technology, changing patterns of human behaviour and rapid urbanisation, huge advances in 3D printing and augmented/virtual reality in the home as well as material advances and seeking out alternative habitats such as underwater homes and even terraforming other planets.
The report was commissioned by Samsung and prepared in collaboration with Space Scientist Dr Aderin-Pocock, and professional urbanists Linda Aitken and Els Leclercq and has been featured in many international press publications:
Advances in material technology allowing huge skyscrapers dwarfing today’s versions, incorporating vertical gardens above the clouds.
Underwater city homes growing their own food and producing breathable oxygen and hydrogen for electricity through the splitting of water molecules.
3D printed space colonies harnessing solar power and the oxygen produced by plant life to create sealed internal environments.
Drone delivered prefabricated homes that can move wherever and whenever you want to creating digital nomads.

WeWantToLearn.net(Diploma Studio 10 at the University of Westminster led by Toby Burgess and Arthur Mamou-Mani) is happy to announce more good news – Three of our students have just received art grants from the Burning Man Festival to build the pavilions they designed as part of our brief – Congratulations to the following winners:
All DS10 students will be offered a chance to build the projects this summer with the designers and we will be supported by RAMBOLL and Format Engineers.
Over the course of four years, DS10 has submitted a little more than 80 proposals to the Global Arts Grant of Burning Man and received a total of 6 grants including the ones for Fractal Cult & Shipwreck (built in 2013) and Hayam (built in 2014). We are all very proud and excited to go back!
As the grant is limited, we need your help to pay for transportation and the additional costs related to construction, you can donate on the PayPal button below just indicate which project you want to donate to, kickstarter campaigns should follow shortly:
