Future open houses

Future open houses
by EFGH (Hayley Eber & Frank Gesualdi) with Irina Chernyakova

Existing rules of the suburbs are becoming outdated as home-made services and collaborative consumption are becoming increasingly widespread. Future Open Houses imagines how the new residential service economy might affect the protocols of an archetypal suburb. As a case study, six blocks of Levittown visualize the potential outcome of a bottom-up suburban service economy. New organization, zoning codes and public-private relationships are proposed.

A catalogue of housing typologies and spatial negotiations is presented for a future suburbia in which increased density, opportunistic land use and new combinations of public and private programming co-exist.

Visitors to the showroom are invited to think about their potential home transformations and to join the Open house movement at www.openhouse2011.com/discover
