Maverick artist come architect, Michael Jantzen, has created this fantastic experiment as a design study for a modular prefabricated eco-friendly house. Steel and foam insulated structural panels are supported on a steel frame in different combinations to create spaces that can be heated or cooled. Some of these panels contain windows or doors, or form spaces for different sleeping and seating. Other panels are hinged to allow movement to capture or block wind or sun or to support photovoltaic cells or solar heaters. It is for sale and we want one.
