About this artwork
With elemental, even cryptic line drawings, Keith Evan Green’s Life Cycle House proposes a physical transformation of the dwelling throughout the life of its inhabitants. Hydraulic pumps and scaffolding expand the house to accommodate a family, then compress the structure until the residence and residents come to a final resting position. Based on the idea of aging as a constantly changing dynamic, Green’s project is a true “machine for living,” with a mobile core to provide plumbing and vertical circulation as the structure expands and contracts over time. Keith Evan Green is a professor of design and mechanical engineering at Cornell University and director of Cornell’s Architectural Robotics Lab.
