Do our houses really seem to belong to our contemporary times? Do they have the same technological content of all the other tools that we use nowadays such as smartphones and the latest car models?

We are almost resigned to consider houses as something structurally different from modernity when compared to the other contemporary products. People probably think that what is necessary in a car or in a phone in terms of interface and flexibility of use can not be asked for a house.

Therefore our general approach perceiving the product “house” is to consider it as something structurally old, as something that cannot be at the same level of modernity as all the other products that we use today.
