terreform 1: homeway




homeway is another conceptual architectural project from the architects of terreform 1 led by
dr. mitchell joachim. the project focuses on how cities can extend into the suburbs sustainably.
their idea is to mount suburban homes on wheels having them drive into the city by day and back
again at night. in their vision, city highways would be enhanced with an intelligent renewable
infrastructure that would serve these mobile home structures. ‘in the future, the physical home will
remain permanent but its location will be transient. our static suburbs will be transformed into
a dynamic and deployable flow. houses will have the option to switch from parked to low speed.
homes, big box retail, movie theaters, supermarkets, business hubs, food production, and power
plants will depart from their existing sprawled communities and line up along highways to create
a truly breathing interconnected metabolic urbanism. dense ribbons of food, energy, waste and
water elements will follow the direction of moving population clusters.’
