Your home V.1.0, for a developer, his concerns for the design are to maximise the space to sell more rooms and to decorate luxurious space for the marketing strategy. For a resident, he wants to get a house that would satisfy his desires. In the design development, architects may achieve a minimum of 30% of their goals; developers could satisfy 70% of their scheme while users have no involvement to inform their desires. Their only option is to choose a room from a physical model and plan at the selling booth of real estate agency. After they moved in, the majority of the users start to customise their room.
What if we could integrate users’ desires in a very early state of the design process? Can we eliminate this modular plan of rooms while satisfying the developer’s business plan? Bring equality to housing development where the rich, the middle-class and the poor can dwell together.
The developer will use the software as a market tool, through a simple, user-friendly interface; the users can determine the quality and the volume of space he required. Also, the software allows the user to specify the style, colour, material of building components. In the situation, the role of the architect is to set the default setting for the software; the setting includes rules, regulations, and the amount of public space. The rules ensure that inhabitants’ desire will not harm his neighbour. Eventually, this software acts as a merger of interests that would bring a new definition of the home where everyone collectively designs.
