The main idea behind Freedom was to build an autonomous house that need not be tied to any appointed location. Freedom – deriving from the English word “free” and the Russian word “house” – is an architectural structure for dwelling purposes – living in FREEDOM one can visit places where man’s foot has never been set. The materials and technologies applied for the project really exist and can be used on construction of the FREEDOM. The Freedom house can hold a balance over the earth by the volume container filled with helium, as a dirigible does (aerostatic lift). The lift up, as well as down can be performed by the thermo-container, like for a balloon, and by blade rotor engines with which the captain can turn the Freedom house up, down, forward, backwards, or around its axis. The living area is about 300m² comprising 6 rooms of 25-30m², the switchboard premise, 50m² cargo premises, 40m² of storage and a 100m²guest room. Entrance into the house is by use of the pneumatic telescopic elevator or via the cargo hatchway in case if the house is tied up to any vertical object (such as a column, a tower, many-storey building, high relief and etc). Τying up is accessible from the earth, by means of 8 pneumatic harpoon anchors placed on the inner perimeter of the Freedom; upon the complete landing eight pneumatic telescopic bearers move out from the second level’s lower part of semi-sphere, with the gyroscope they level the horizon of the FREEDOM on the cross-country terrain and can be applied on angle of slope up to 20 degrees. The prototype of the lifting structure was designed by Soviet scientists in the 1980’s by the Constructor’s Bureau “Termoplan” headed by Yuriy Alekseevich Ryzhkov, then Rector of Moscow Aviation Institute (MAI). In 1989 the assembling of the model with expected carrying capacity of 3 tons was commenced in Ulyanovsk at the aviation plant n.a. Ustinov.(at present time it’s named as “Aviastar”), but the project was cancelled due to the breakup of the USSR and cancellation of financing. However, architect Ulitin Dmitriy, and designer Taratuta Anastasiya, of design studio Artzona decided to revive the stopped venture.
