According to the creators of the project, called Home of the future - Australian architectural studio LAVA - this large-scale prototype of the architecture of the future, designed to balance the needs of man and nature in a single modern system.
Theme of man's relationship with the environment, modern technologies and development finds itself in a gigantic dome-shaped structure, whose construction will begin in late 2011 in Beijing. It will be presented to 15 different samples of the microclimate of the planet, recreating their characteristic natural environment with integrated information technology, said "ugmk.info".
Each of the spaces smoothly into the adjacent. Domed ceiling structure is made of a transparent film ETFE. This modern tech stuff is a great alternative to traditional glass, since it has half the weight, lower cost, high thermal insulation properties and ability to pass ultraviolet light. The latter characteristic is of great benefit in the formation of winter gardens and greenhouses. Besides, the film ETFE, has high elasticity, resistance to temperature changes.
Draft Home of the future involved in an architectural exhibition held in Sydney (Australia) from 18 to 31 March.
