Abstract

Futuristic concepts of housing environments show people, how it will be possible to live in the near future. These projects inspire engineers, scientists and researchers who bring modern technologies to life. It seems that technology is the key to solving the problems that humanity faces today. Housing environments need a new interpretation adapted to contemporary people who are looking for a new quality of living. In the article, the author will characterize futuristic visions of housing in the future, based on their location: on land, underground, in the air, under or on water.
