The human dwelling having existed for 10,000 years has played no role in shaping the design of its younger counterpart; the automobile. The automobile industry of the 20th century spawned terms like "suburb" and "sprawl", ultimately shaping the world's perception of dwelling and reinventing our cities from the ground up. The dwelling and the automobile have become synonymous with a person's individual space, security and values, regardless of their culture because of the inherent cost to produce and purchase these items. In the 21st century, the new vision of the modern home or dwelling will reshape the notion of the automobile while supporting the public nostalgia for it's free spirited essence.
