The role of the home and the ‘home of the future’ has long intrigued designers, architects, manufacturers and popular culture alike. Throughout the twentieth century, the home was a place of social and technological change. It was also a testing ground, where architects, designers and manufacturers imagined new ways of living. Many of those visions anticipated how we live today, even if the way in which they were depicted might appear fantastical to us today. ”Home Futures – Glorious future!” explores how some of these radical ideas and visions are reflected in our homes today.
