Science fiction?

Posted in houses

A short post, disguised as a question… I’m sitting here watching Aliens and it struck me that the apartment that Sigourney has is very similar to that of Bruce Willis in the fifth element and also that of Harrison Ford in Blade Runner.

All three films show a sort of grubby future where people live in windowless, injection moulded apartments which have more in common with a train sleeper carriages than what we know as home.

My question is this; are we lucky enough to have escaped this future or is it yet to come? Are we, or our children, going to end up stacked one on top of the other in prefabricated crates?

    Anyone living in a Stewart Milne building is very close to this as a reality already 🙂

    But seriously I’ll have a think about the question.
