Future homes won't be anything like the Jetsons but there will still be surprises!

Link: https://www.treehugger.com/green-architecture/futurology-new-study-looks...

British futurists envision homes thirty years down the road that aren't as drastically different as the homes we have today. There are some surprises (won't we need electrical outlets?) and some sensible things (like using smaller lots but building taller, to make the best use of land). I think the most notable change is that we no longer expect to have flying cars in the future, unlike generations of futurists past. In fact, most of us won't have any cars, apparently, because we'll have a lot of good public transportation options.

Making the best use of the lot by making the house taller is not child/persons with disability/senior citizen friendly. Having a car is a necessity especially if you have babies or when you have an elderly with you at home.

I'm sure they can find a way on how you want things to work and for the better good, right?

Houses that have solar panels are good because it reduces a large chunk of your utility bills and energy will store itself which you can use for emergencies in the future. It can even up your expenses on your mortgage. Investing in these kind of architechtural homes is a great idea.

How about a playground? If it isn't possible being a limited land, then how about a swimming pool along the terrace of those taller houses? It's really a better idea to use the solar panels over the roof as well as buy a hybrid or electric car will not cause a huge problem. Because solar will serve electric charge so easily.

My thoughts, too. Oh and you can also include electronic motorcycles/bicycles!

Oh they had already a planned for the electric charging station. Obviously, they may use the extra charge in front of that house just like charging a private car! It goes on my mind that I wish once I had had these facilities according to this plan.

That's an interesting article. While I don't agree with some of their ideas, I can concur that future homes will be placed on smaller lots, mainly due to the size of the population in cities. In terms of power generation, I hope that we can lobby on using solar power as the main source of energy for everyone. It would be fascinating to ask Elon Musk's take on this subject that's for sure lol.

Right you are...building tall houses is not a better idea I think. Look the Europeans, Canadians they aren't concerned about making houses tall. They all want to make a house confined with happiness...they just want a playground, a garden in front of their house. But in this article, a plan is going to establish how you can make a house with all facilities within a small land.

it's not about modern futurists' vision or something, just about which future you imagine. is it 10 50 100 years ahead?

I think all of these brilliant ideas will 100% take place after 30 years. Not now or in the next 10 years.
