Home Economics, presents five new models for domestic life in the 21st century. The book proposes alternative futures for the home, asking us to re-examine how we live through the lens of time.

Published by The Spaces to accompany the British Pavilion’s exhibition at the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale, it re-writes the brief for contemporary living. 
Artists, architects and designers have created new proposals for the home based on the amount of time people will spend in them – hours, days, months, years and decades – all featured in the book.

“New technologies have displaced how, where and when we work and play,” say the exhibition curators, Shumi Bose, Jack Self and Finn Williams, in their introduction. As a result, a brave new world of possibility for the frontline of British architecture has emerged.

Co-published by REAL Foundation, this book is a truly collaborative work that engages with the world beyond architecture – including contributions by artists, fashion designers, photographers and critical writers – to inspire us to reconsider the spaces we spend time in, and our lives, anew.
