The Casa em Movimento is the house of the future. While some may scoff at its solar-panelled roof, thinking to themselves that that is so 2009, they will want to pay more attention to the mechanics behind this particular shelter. The Casa em Movimento moves with the sun in order to enjoy optimal exposure at all times. This allows it to create energy, adjust room lighting and reduce heat consumption with no worries.

Developed in Portugal by researchers at the University of Oporto, the Casa em Movimento boasts photovoltaic panels, thermal cork and a structure of timber to ensure durability and, more importantly, longevity. It has made the eco-friendly home even more practical. As the masterminds behind the design state, “The family evolved. The house evolved with them.”
