Cocoon House featured in the Purist Magazine - Architecture
The drive toward energy-saving technologies poses new challenges to the architectural and design community. One of these is to ensure that solutions to current problems do not come at the expense of the emotional and social needs of their human audiences. People are unlikely to incorporate environmental architecture and design in their everyday lives if they do not find them attractive.
Can solar designs bring humans and the planet closer together? If so, how? More specifically, how can solar architecture embody sunlight in a way that is affective? We can find answers to these questions by looking beyond the limited technical function of environmental technologies used in projects such as Cocoon.
