America has always been a nation on the road. We desire to move the suburbs on smart networked wheels. We intend to affix a diverse range of mobility mechanisms to home units that generate our novel HOMEWAY system. In the future, the physical home will remain permanent but its location will be transient. Our static suburbs will be transformed into a dynamic and deployable flow. Houses will have the option to switch from parked to low speed. Homes, big box retail, movie theaters, supermarkets, business hubs, food production, and power plants will depart from their existing sprawled communities and line up along highways to create a truly breathing interconnected metabolic urbanism. Dense ribbons of food, energy, waste and water elements will follow the direction of moving population clusters.
