17 Nov Domespace project in France
In the suburbs of Lyon, built like a spaceship house constantly rotating with the sun. The design of the house is a complex organism, consisting of more than 3 million pieces.
Plastic volume is based on a solid steel base with a built-in chain driven by an electric motor. With this device, the power of which at the same time is not great – 3-4 kW, the house can make revolution around its axis by 320 degrees in just one minute.
The rate can be adjusted easily as rotation program which any user can set independently. For example, a house can be made to smoothly turn in any direction, using a special remote control. It is also easily possible to give such a setup that the building continuously and precisely follow the movement of the sun.
