LAKA COMPETITION: Architecture that Reacts
We always tend to think that natural disasters could never happen to us. But Nature does not discriminate. Catastrophic consequences destroy many lives; however, thanks to technological developments people's ability to protect themselves is growing. This concept has a high probability to become one of such means.
Modern architecture insufficiently protects its inhabitants against catastrophes such as floods and volcanic eruptions. Architecture needn't be stationary; rather, as it becomes increasingly transdisciplinary, it has grown to include such spheres as robotics and renewable resources. I believe that the implementation of a project such as the Moving House will change the fundamental nature of architecture from static to dynamic, and potentially save thousands of lives. It connects to an ordinary single-family house and, under normal circumstances, functions as an energy station, supplementing a house's energy sources with its own access to and refinement of renewable resources.
