HYPERLIVING is a response to our rapidly changing world, that gradually morphs into a seamless blend of physical and digital, called hyperreality. The project focuses on the potentials and threats caused by the arising 4th Industrial Revolution, where autonomous machines, big data, extended reality and other cutting-edge developments redefine our economic and social future. The goal of HYPERLIVING is to utilize both soft- and hardware, in one system managed by Artificial Intelligence. That can allow raising the use-efficiency of spaces and give people room and stimulant for daily life-long growth, so important during progressing automation. In the proposal, the residents gain access to a huge amount of various shared areas, available for living, working, playing, or learning, which connect people in activity-oriented circles. The areas can be claimed with and extended by either private or shared pods, that travel constantly on the surface of the building, using magnetic levitation, creating an ever-changing mosaic. A pod connects to a common area, becoming its integral part and temporarily defining its character and enriching the program and ownership. HYPERLIVING tower is a fluid playground that offers versatility and supports people in making the most out of technology, nourishing their skills, knowledge, health and social lives in order to facilitate a community resilient to the rapid changes.
