e-House 2000 - Lab for Living

select quotes

e-House is an experimental house of the future, a laboratory for living designed by award-winning architect Michael McDonough. A high-performance website-controlled building, it was developed with a team of engineers, scientists, environmentalists, and over 100 manufacturers.

Appearing first as a weblog, e-House is now being constructed in New York’s Hudson Valley. Exhibiting a dramatic new style, and using response to nature as generator of architectural form, it integrates advanced building products and systems with traditional materials and techniques. Emphasizing emerging life-styles, it is configured for distance computer control and e-commuting.

e-House has been widely published and will be the subject of an upcoming book.
