Keeping up with business and technology trends is your life, but have you heard of this one? This new form of renewable energy will shock you, because it definitely took me by my arms. It’s called the water house.
On a quest to renew the world, architect Matyas Gutai discovered a new path for sustainable energy. Liquid engineering is commonly known as the future of the computer science world. Alongside reducing energy demand for processors, this cutting edge tech is a medium for energy transfer.
Seeing another possibility spawning, Gutai moved and took claim to a new type of renewable energy. The water house disregards the building practice of ancient times. Just as Ford’s new business model took the industrial age by storm, this new practice has done the same to the architectural world.
We live in a world where bigger is always better. But this is no longer the case according to Gutai’s new philosophy. A big strong immovable structure has always been the heart of design. This faulty thinking allows the water house to shine.
Gutai believes the secret lies in a structure being responsive. The water house structure is always in response mode. The structure can heat or cool on demand.
The water house has 2 rivals when it comes to sustainable design and alternative energy. First being passivhaus, relying on thick insulation and ventilation to increase energy efficiency. The second rival is active house, which relies on collecting renewable energy from the environment.
Both options have their benefits, but when it comes to design and energy efficiency they have their limits. Since they both were designed to sustain a European climate, this presents a major fault. These 2 methods also overlook a few hidden contributors to sustainability like local materials, transportation, and material consumption.
