Utilizing best practices from manufacturing industries, i.e. automotive and aerospace, which create some of the most sophisticated products, the FutureHAUS team's goal is to design and build modular structures that integrate smart technologies, energy efficient systems, and new materials. This factory produced, energy-positive home adapts to changing patterns of life and work in the near future. The long-term goal is to make buildings more efficient, more accessible, more livable, and more beautiful.
