A lineage of disruptive technologies has had a deleterious effect on the family structure and social functions of the British domestic setting. Can new sociologies from Brazil, Russia, India and China, which are forming the majority of London’s immigration, reinvigorate the traditional London ‘BRIC’(K) house?


The ‘BRIC’ house is a high-quality, high-density and low-price housing development proposal creating multicultural communal spaces for single people, single parents and immigrants in Chelsea Barracks, which is trying to respond to the question: how can technologies change the relationship between family and house?
