For a number of years, ever more refined and updated prototypes of Intelligent Houses have been produced around the globe in which companies and research institutions demonstrate how the computer can become an integral part of living spaces and thus make the home a networked environment.How will the new technologies change residential architecture in the near future? Twelve emerging architectural firms have been asked to develop visionary answers to this question.

Six further essays delve into the influence of new technologies on residential architecture and life in the home..
