In her book, 'Domestic Revolution,' Ruth Goodman proposes that a seemingly small change in the way Victorian households fired up their iron range (from wood to coal) fundamentally altered not just our domestic comforts, but our entire world. This domestic demand for more coal led to the expansion of mining, engineering, construction, and industry, kick-starting, pushing, and fueling the Industrial Revolution. Similarly, small shifts in our day-to-day practices can trigger something big, something unprecedented--something that spreads across the globe and revolutionizes the way we live.
The Forgotten Room
Almost every suburban homes have a unique living space: the patio. This space continues to be at the center of legal controversies and neighborhood disputes, as it occupies the ambiguous space between indoor and outdoor, private and public. Even though patio has the potential to embrace both the indoor and outdoor activities, it often finds itself in neglect in many suburban homes. How can we revolutionize this ubiquitous program through an intervention?
For this competition, entrants are encouraged to envision an installation that can make a big impact in the way we use patio. Can this seemingly small part of the house change the way we live? Perhaps we have not discovered the full potential to utilize such a complex intersection of social boundaries. Your solution should be innovative, feasible, and have the potential to create positive change when replicated on a larger scale.
