9780060557423: The Smart House

Divided into three sections, The Smart House illustrates how technology is changing our homes. The book looks at three areas:

Smart Technology, which examines five aspects of technology and how it's being integrated throughout the house: lighting design and window treatments; audio and video entertainment; voice and data management; security and access; and environmental controls and energy management.

Smart Materials, which shows new building materials such as titanium, electronic glass that can become transparent or opaque at the flick of a switch, polycarbonate materials, laser-perforated metals, all of which are changing the way homes are built and the ways in which we use and perceive spaces within these structures.

Smart Design looks at more extravagant innovations such as swimming pools cantilevered in mid-air, windows that recreate digital views at night, interior spaces whose functions are transformed through architectural slight of hand and computer aided design, all of which point to new ways of thinking about how we live and how we use space in this increasingly space-challenged world.

Case studies of ten recently constructed homes are detailed to illustrate each aspect of this technology and to show the full potential technology affords modern home design.
