Overview

The Media House Project is the result of a strategic alliance between the Metapolis Group from Barcelona, the MIT Media Lab, and the Fundacio Politecnica de Catalunya, with the collaboration of the consortium I2Cat and the Elisava Design School. In order to build a prototype of an informational house, this project tests the progression of informational techniques beyond computers, and integrates it into everyday life. As seen here, the Metapolis architects have developed an informative structure, which incorporates in just one element—a house—the physical structure and electrical and data networks that enable a dynamic and configurable link between the entities (people, objects, space, limits, networks, contents) and that which create an inhabitable environment.Edited by Vicente Guallart and Laura Cantarella.
