The Suburbanization of the Soul

Tomorrow Museum has a great article about The world´s strangest housing communities.

Losts of ballardian examples of future housing for the rich who increasingly retreat into gated communities, that resemble luxurious versions of high-security prisons.
In these environments you can´t be sure if the inhabitants are trying to keep the outside from getting in, or if they are actually locking themselves away from the world, drawing the curtains while watching live-footage of their own CCTV-cameras.

The abandoned space-age resort in Taiwan, which I mentioned here is also featured.

Great read, great site!

...Oh, and "what is house?"
