The future keeps looking extremely green and eco-friendly when it comes to lifestyles. A perfect example would be the FabLab House by IAAC which according to DesignBoom is a 75 m2 house that's suitable for a family of 4 and uses all its resources from the environment.
The FabLab House by IAAC is made completely out of wood and uses the water, wind and sun to create a microclimate throughout the house. What's also very neat is that according to IAAC the house acts like a tree by capturing "entergy with its solar 'leaves' and sends it down to its roots" -- allowing for reusable energy.
