The house will operate as a “huge, autonomous electrical appliance” on its own.



Kenya Hara : curator
This idea was presented at the 2013 House Vision exhibition in Tokyo, curated by Kenya Hara. “Here is a good example of taking advantage of Japanese traditional housing [while still moving forward],” he says. “Take the habit of taking off [one's] shoes at the entrance [of a house]. ‘The high-tech entrance’ could possibly manage our physical data, such as pulse, blood pressure, temperature and weight. The bed and carpet capture these data and send them to the hospital for the purpose of health control. This illustrates the possibility of the ‘future-style house,’ in which [even] the intelligent ‘bed’ could directly dialogize with the human body.”
