title Deliver E room : a new physical space for the residential units to come
source University of Washington, Design Machine Group
summary The need to allocate vendors of the 13th century castles gave origin to a large hall where all could gather,work and sleep.The need of ice boxes to be constantly replenished in the early 20th century gave origin to the ice/service entrance in many houses.In the 1950 ís the milkman model brought also the milk- box,a unit to be installed or built into customerís homes. Once again,deliveries will influence the architecture of the households,fueled this time by the e-commerce economy. Soon, a new appliance that will enable the unattended delivery of physical goods is going to be part of future households,and architects will have to plan ahead in order to accommodate this necessity of the Internet world. The space for this appliance, the deliver Eroom,will have to be accessible from the interior and exterior of the house, allow enough capacity for the appliance that must accommodate most if not all deliveries,and access to it will most probably be controlled through the Net.
