This whimsical building does not exist, but how cool would it be if it did? Home-scaping is a study of design for modular buildings, which is how designer Michael Jantzen prefabricated this building system. Home-scaping allows increasing and decreasing of size and shape according to the demand of changing needs.

The structure’s shapes were inspired by organic landscapes of clustered buildings. If constructed, lightweight pre-insulated concrete would be used. Alternative energy systems will be used, including solar and wind. The building will emphasize natural ventilation and lighting. The house will include greenhouses for growing fresh food.

Michael Jantzen is an artist and architect with a science background.
