This Solar-Powered Home Literally Changes Shape To Follow The Sun


This "Transformation House" concept by Michael Jantzen literally changes its shape as the sun passes through the sky.

The design has five center sections that can be rotated 360 degrees either manually or automatically around the living space to catch the sun's rays to warm the house, wind to cool the house, rain to supply it with water, or to simply alter the shape of the home.

The Transformation House is just a design concept, but if were to be built it would be constructed from light-weight steel, and would be partially encased in photovoltaic cells to generate electricity from the sun. The central floor would be built of glass and a steel support frame with furniture stored in semi-circular cabinets designed to twist out of the floor whenever needed.
