Nuevas casas Verdes, sólo añade agua. (en inglés)

A crew of architects/designers[/ninjas] from MIT have developed what they are calling ‘Fab Tree Hab’, a house that would grow from seed to sappling to green ninja abode [and in only 25 years!]. The design is intended to replace Habitat for Humanity, where houses for those in need could be grown on a regular basis, creating completely green/sustainable communities.

example of the growth of the structure

Here is some info on the house:

1. Composed of 100% living nutrients

2. Makes effective contributions to the ecosystem

3. Accountable removal of human impacts

4. Circulate water & metabolic flows symbiotically

5. Achieves fitness with our earthen web of life

While I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for one of these bad boys, much respect for the design team for coming up with a truly green housing solution. Humans are a part of nature; its only right that our architecture should be too.

  1. Me encanta la idea. Si no fuera muy cara estaría muy bien regalársela a un niño para que la viera crecer y para que después fuera su casa.
