McDonough's E-House


A team of Environmental Policy students from Columbia visited McDonough's e-House on March 2004.

e-House is an experimental house of the future, a laboratory for living designed by award-winning architect Michael McDonough.  A high-performance Internet-based building, it was developed with a team of engineers, building scientists, computer scientists, environmentalists and over 100 manufacturers.

Built first as a website-based digital reality, e-House is now being constructed in New York's Hudson Valley. Exhibiting a dramatic new style, and using response to nature as generator of architectural form, it integrates advanced building products and systems with traditional materials and techniques.  Emphasizing emerging life-styles, it is configured for distance computer controls and e-commuting.
