This special issue speculates on the future of our living environment through an examination of the ways in which the future of architecture and the city has been conceived since the beginning of the modern period, illustrated through plans and photos from past decades. The modern images of the future portray a utopian environment that is controlled and comfortable, whereas the 20th century has seen the decline of the house as the primary site of domesticity. The future of our living environment appears to be on a trajectory where the house as a physical place will disappear, itself subject to a process of dematerialisation across architecture, design, and technology today.
