Architects are being asked to look into the future and design a home fit for living in in 50 years time.
The competition is to design a home for up to five people, and the winning design will focus on changing family and work patterns, new technology, sustainability and aesthetics. The home will be built in St Fagans, outside Cardiff, in spring 2000, must cost no more than £120,000 to build, and should be designed to be built in numbers. The competition is being run by the bbc Cymru Wales and the National Museums & Galleries of Wales.
The site will be the grounds of the Museum of Welsh Life which shows how houses have developed in Wales over the last 500 years. The winner, to be announced in the week of 28 June, will feature in a three-part series by bbc Wales in 2000.
