We at the Optimist Daily are always curious about the latest developments in architecture and design. Recently, it came to our attention that Apple TV+ now has a pretty incredible documentary series out that will take you to some of the world’s most intriguing dwellings.
All the episodes in the series showcase how domestic architecture is being re-evaluated across different contexts and geographical areas, taking radical, innovative, and highly creative forms. The projects explored in each episode are questioning the pre-defined architectural answers and spatial configurations, responding to a complex, highly personal set of needs, or exploring uncommon construction materials and building techniques, whether local or high-tech.
From bamboo architecture in Bali to a Swiss-army-knife apartment in Hong Kong, to 3D-printed houses for a community in Mexico, the series explores an array of innovative takes on what a “home” can be, providing great inspiration for re-thinking residential space. The show is called Home—and it seems pretty fitting to watch since we aren’t supposed to leave our own homes at the moment.
