A3.3 Project Assignment: Homeworld

Reflect on our studies of ‘Affective Architecture’, including 1) Bachelard’s discussion of the daydreams, memories, and our associations to different aspects of our homes and 2) Flusser’s proposal for a new type of architecture and 3) draw from your own current experiences in quarantine to design a homeworld: a building or network of buildings that would satisfy your every existential need. Think about the whole breadth of experiences you would want and need to be housed and enabled by your new space. How will it address comfort, safety, memories, daydreams, social relationships, activity, and nature? If you could never leave this space, what would you need to be there? This is an open ended prompt that you can interpret through your own creative process.
