Knocking on Future’s Door

This is so unbelievably cool!  I wish I had known about this competition before we built our house!

There is a competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy wherein contestants are judged on ten individual components of building:

  1. architecture
  2. market appeal
  3. engineering
  4. affordability
  5. communications
  6. comfort
  7. hot water
  8. appliances
  9. home entertainment, and
  10. energy balance

The entries are all very modern, ecologically savvy, and extraordinarily cutting-edge.  Take a look at the article where I first read about it, and the website for the competition.

Here’s the winning entry, by the way:
