The Media House Project is the fruit of a strategic alliance between the Metapolis Group from Barcelona, the MIT Media Lab, and the Fundacio Politecnica de Catalunya, with the collaboration of the Consortium I2CAT and the Elisava Design School, in order to build a prototype of an informational house. This project enables the testing of the progression of information technologies beyond that of computers and integrates them into everyday life, literally looking to build computers from the components of buildings, in such a way that the logical intelligence of a structure can grow with its physical form. The Media House will not be a house with a computer; instead, the house will be the computer. As Neil Gershenfeld says, architecture will never be inert again.
