Fab Lab House by IAAC

This unique sustainable home was designed by IAAC, all aspects of the home are considered to be eco friendly. The paraboloid shape of the structure is designed to gather and preserve more solar energy than the typical flat panel design. The unusual shape allows it to receive sunlight from almost every angle. The building is modular and being that it is made of wood, it’s relatively light and easy to handle. Each piece is designed using CAD/CAM and is laser cut. Being that the majority of the structure is off the ground and that the shape of the home is aerodynamic, it is my guess that it would do well in areas subject to flooding and hurricanes.

  1. If it is aerodynamic I am guessing it would do well in tornado weather?
