This is the design of a sustainable, eco-friendly house shaped in the form of a bee orchid. The house, which is called The Orchid and is located in the UK, uses geothermal heating and an underground pump to create its own energy. So far so good.

The Orchid, designed by Sarah Featherstone, sits on 550 acres of beautiful land in Cotswold which is a privately-owned nature reserve and it is priced at £7.2 million euros or about $15 million dollars. And that's where I get off the ride. Fifteen million dollars? Isn't that sort of counter-intuitive to the whole environmental movement? Stats for Eco-Luxury Architecture Trending: Older & Buzzing
