Liquid LivingNOVA Desgins “Future Living”
w/ Robert Brown + Xinyi Xie
A delirious entry for NOVA designs’ 2018 “Future Living” competition, receiving an honorable mention. The project adopts Zygmunt Bauman’s premise of “liquid modernity,” wherein self-perpetuating ambiguity transfigure power structures, cultural systems, and interpersonal relationships, this project imagines liquid life in an infinite-expanse mat ho using. The project is more pragmatic than dystopia: it illustrates an inevitable conclusion of neoliberal housing logics. What is Levittown without the garden? It’s Liquid Living.
