Transformation House by Michael Jantzen

Michael Jantzen is at it again, turning his Wind Shaped Pavilion on its side to create an "interactive, responsive, self-contained structure that can change its shape to accommodate different functions. The five center section can be rotated manually or automatically around the living space in order to catch the sun to warm the house, catch the wind to cool the house, catch the rain to supply it with water, catch different views, an or to alter the shape of the entire house just for the fun of it....made of lightweight steel and partially clad in photovoltaic cells.

Inside, "all of the furnishing are stored inside of four containers that can be rotated up out of the glass floor, and folded open for use. Additional sections could be added to the structure to increase its size."
