The Dorm of the Future Awaits Us

0131dorm.jpg

Kind of an interesting “why not just post it?” find: it was just announced that Jonathan Levi of Levi Architects, has won the $25,000 prize offered up by the Association of College and University Housing Officers International for his design in a competition to find a new sustainable prototype for the dorm room of the future, one that will hopefully last for more than 25 years. The results: well, Levi gets the money, and twenty-five years from now, eighteen year olds who haven’t been born yet, will arrive on campus for their first day and say, “Ick. I bet this was cool twenty years ago, but this place is totally xoid.” ‘Xoid’ of course, being some slang word in the future. Said student will also be a robot.
