Houses of the future on show in the present

Abstract:
Within 15 years, homebuilders may be living in prefabricated houses made almost entirely from steel, timber, clay, glass, concrete or even cardboard, according to New South Wales Government Architect Chris Johnson.

The glass house, which was a collaboration between James Muir and Carl Masens of the UTS Institute of Nanoscale Technology and CSIRO, demonstrates how nano-technology can be incorporated into glass to create an environmentally responsive, ultra low-energy design
