Tomorrow’s Home 2050
Tomorrow’s Home was an immersive installation where the home of the future – 30 years from now – became a reality. Drawing upon leading research from the UCL Institute of Healthcare Engineering, it playfully imagined how our dwellings could be designed to help us live independently and well as we age, and support our changing planet.
Exploring imagined health technologies, from the toilet that analyses your waste to the doormat that can detect intruders, and how they could become deeply embedded in people’s homes.
Tomorrow’s Home questioned:
- Who is technology in our homes being created for?
- What impact will climate change have on our home lives?
- What kind of healthcare should be in our homes and what belongs outside the home?
- How can our homes help us stay connected to our communities in a world that is increasingly automated?
- What role can our homes play in reducing consumption and reusing and recycling more?
