Efficient machines to live in
Beauty and performance is a concept that illustrates perfectly what the whole thing is about. Architects live with this idea in mind and always try to find the perfect balance between both poles.
Energy efficiency is the new requirement that adds to general performance in architecture. And future architecture will have a lot to say about energy, as long as photovoltaic electricity and hot water can be extensively produced by solar houses. And what is more, electricity can be shared if solar houses are properly connected to the general grid.
