Future Living Systems

Representing the capstone of a three year research collaboration between industry and universities, these two 1:1 scale prototypes push the boundaries of building and housing design by offering a technical demonstration of componentised construction that could function as an apartment, an office, a student residence, a hospital room, or more.

Visitors can enter two 1:1 scale prototypes. One explores future living systems in which buildings have the capacity to adapt to and accommodate the changing needs of users and the urban context. The other prototype explores a range of innovative  manufacturing and assembly techniques required to facilitate a componentised approach to housing, building and construction. Visitors will also be able to see drawings and information on the whole research project from start to finish.

Partners: Lendlease, The Future Building Initiative at Monash University, and the University of Sydney have all collaborated on this Research Project.
