The solar declathlon expo in Madrid featured the Fab Lab house – a 75 squared meter paraboloid shaped house covered in solar panels. The shape of the Fab Lab house was chosen by the designers as they believed it was the perfect form for capturing the sun’s rays. The elevation from its three legs helps the house keep cool in summer.
It is also made from natural materials it’s possibly one of the most eco-friendly abodes you could hope for.
The Fab Lab Solar Panel House can be built in an impressive 15 days and house a family of four.
The Fab Lab Solar Panel House is the creation of the Institut D’Arquitectura Avancada de Catalunya who have developed the project to the point where they can build the house for you, with the contact details located on their website.1
