When this single family house was built, it took the international architecture world by storm. Constructed on a modular basis, it was glazed throughout, had no interior dividing walls, and could meet its own energy requirements completely. This is the first book to document Sobek's unique house. In it the author explains the architectural design, describing the supporting structures, the technology used, the temperature control system, and to conclude he explores what it must be like to live in such a futuristic building.
