"If, for the first machine age, the preferred metaphor for the house was industrial, a “machine for living in”, the second machine age would perhaps privilege the medical: the house as at once prosthesis and prophylactic. In the Corbusian ‘home of man’ technology took the form of more or less benign ‘object-types’ and perfectly controlled environments… The line between nature and machine, between organic and inorganic, seemed crystal clear… Now, the boundaries between organic and inorganic, blurred by cybernetic and bio-technologies, seem less sharp; the body, itself invaded and reshaped by technology, invades and permeates the space outside, even as this space takes on dimensions that themselves confuse the inner and the outer…" - Anthony Vidler
