The Autonomous Threshold

Conceived as a kind of experimental commuter island, ‘The Autonomous Threshold’ explores new emerging domestic territories created by recent developments in self- driving vehicle technologies.

Located within Parkland Walk in North London, a series of carousel-like house units provide the necessary hardware for daily life, while mobile vehicle units, can be programmed to receive parts of the house and travel away with them.

Daily life becomes de- coupled from the drudgery of commuting, allowing the occupant /traveller to watch a film on the way home from work, to eat a bowl of cereal whilst on the school run or to take a long shower while on the M25.
