How would you build a house for a cyborg? The Un-Private House examines this and other questions confronting domestic architecture at the dawn of a new millenium. Changes in family structure, shifting conceptions of domestic privacy, the home as workplace and the revolution in communications and media have all created entirely new relationships between so-called "exterior" and "interior" realms. Photographs, plans and drawings present 26 projects by architectural firms in the United States, Europe and Japan. Their innovations include spectacular new materials, including "smart skins" through which houses themselves transmit information, as well as structural forms. The houses presented here, and their designers, not only reconfigure the domestic landscape but also inaugurate the first architectural debates of the new century.
