Where is design and its very representation going, today bordering on the programs of Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality, the Metaverse, ChatBots, humanoid robots that seem to be taking us to unknown horizons where the creativity of the mind might even be challenged? And how will spaces and architecture, houses and cities, design evolve? How to bring reality and imagination together? In this science fiction scenario, how will functions and services change?
