Have you heard of the revolution?Introduced by design & real estate developer Robbie Antonio, 'Revolution' is a collection of limited edition, pre-crafted properties, including homes and pavilions. Over 30 of the world’s preeminent architects, artists and designers have come together on the project in order to create an exclusive series of prefabricated, liveable spaces.
Some interesting concepts have come from this project in an attempt to introduce the most innovative and creative designed spaces.

This is a brand new housing concept. Designed as a mobile home that could go anywhere around the world, the idea is that everybody can be a client, no matter where they live. The modular design of the unit allows multiple units to be added together like a cloud. It has been designed to be without limitation - it can be a city, a landscape or simply a home.
Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas claim it is an easy build, saying a variety of materials can be used for construction to match the budget. They have kept to a minimalist layout in the belief that the only important things in a home is a nice place to eat, sit and sleep.

The original Glass House, designed seventy years ago by Philip Johnson as his home in Connecticut, has become a classic representation of modern architecture. The Glass House was not only Philip Johnson’s private residence, but also his viewing platform for the world. The primary function of a house is to provide for the basic need of shelter, but the beauty of a glass house is that it becomes a framework for the viewing of one’s surroundings.
The modular glass house was inspired by the original but has been re‐imagined as a series of modular components that can be pre‐fabricated and shipped to any site. The design follows the principals of the original by introducing a typical window bay and structure that become the outer skin of the building.

The Modular Living Unit by PMR + METRO is a proposal that provides a multi-functional solution through the principles of reduced design grammar and refined construction technique. This flexible system can be employed in a variety of contexts and environments: urban and rural, tropical and temperate, individual and collective.
The basic living unit is 65m2 and is composed of a living room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and two verandas. This module can be distributed over a given lot in a variety of situations, creating diverse spatial combinations through multiple units. It may also be extended to two stories. A simple structural frame permits a great range of arrangements.
Its composing elements are dimensioned to allow ease of transportation and to minimise the need for the use of supporting equipment during installation. An innovative facade system is constructed of durable, fibre-reinforced Ductal concrete panels with different levels of insulation for different climates. The interior is made of a combination of concrete, glass and wooden panels.
