CMYK House is a construct that culminates the research on building technology and two-dimensional print media. The shrinkwrap building envelope absorbs the logic of packaging design, defiling the usual demand for permanency in building making. The project also takes on the viability to produce interchangeable room types and utility modules for the house. The structural system is a docking device, allowing multiple units produced by industrial and electronic corporations to be installed and programmed by the home owner. The design is probing for the dominance of an appliance culture embedded in our contemporary lives and habits for dwelling. It is the interest of this project to take on this socioeconomic phenomenon, speculating on the close connection between architecture and products.
