Jellyfish house

The Jellyfish House, by architect  Iwamoto Scott is an unbuilt project that uses the jellyfish as inspiration for a house designed for a site located on Treasure Island in San Francisco bay.  Just as a jellyfish filters water through its permeable skin, the house is enveloped in a parametric mesh skin to capture, filter and store rain water for use in the home.  It does this by  channeling the water into compartments which purify the water using UV light powered by thin film photovoltaics.

    thinking in mass… not singles

  2. we’re all about objects with mass around here. as for production: when governments require major decreases in building energy requirements, you’ll see technology like this actually happen… otherwise its going to be hard to come up with funding for projects like this.
