You might have a certain predisposition against the aesthetics of prefabricated housing, but Joseph Bellomo's 'House Arc' design is sure to prove your preconceptions wrong.

Joseph Bellomo's 'House Arc' is based on, of all things, a bicycle rack. The off-grid design features curved steel armature and a coating of photovoltaic film to provide the home's internal power. Bellomo thinks an 800-square-foot 'House Arc' could cost as little as $100,000, a price (and design, incidentally) that lends itself well to additions.
