100 House

"In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you." _ John 14:2

Think of a house as a field of probabilities — an ever evolving matrix of spatial possibilities. Imagine there are at least a hundred-some choices for plans, sections, and elevations. While the traditional dwelling lends itself to exclusive diagrams for a certain dweller and a given context, this house does not surrender itself to any explicit circumstances. Let us call it the 100 House.

100 House constantly processes all the data received from its occupants (if any) including their habits, moods, and feelings; as well as its approximate environment and its variables (time, temperature, season, and the like). Accordingly, by its independent cognition the house corresponds to those very inputs and suggests the most appropriate spatial arrangements. Obviously, this process will recalibrate itself by the smallest interior/exterior changes imposed to the system.

100 House is always in the simultaneous process of receiving, adapting, activating, and becoming. The house can be seen then, as the manifestation of a receptacle where the effects of intrinsic and extrinsic fluctuations demands the substance of its construction to be changed again and again and again — inevitably the physicality of its objecthood can exist only in an in-between condition.

100 House is an ‘operating system’ (i.e. OS X 10.13.4); its multiplicity makes its reality virtual; it exists in your mind. It can only be actualized in one’s memory and that memory dwells in the future. In the end the question remains, whether architecture is virtual or actual?
