The examine of the regularly occurring (home) in the alien (SF) creates a special cultural lens by which to mirror on our present architectural situation. SF has continuously been associated with alienation; even though, the stipulations of such alienation, and accordingly notions of domestic, have obviously replaced. there's usually a perceived comprehension of the accepted that atrophies the inquisitive and interpretive techniques quite often activated whilst confronting the surprising. therefore, through the use of the estranging features of SF to examine an idea inherently associated with its perceived contrary - the house - a different serious research with specific relevance for modern structure is made possible.
