At a time where  electronics and technology are entering our day to day life at home, an other alternative using "bio-technologies" propose the home of the future.

A former group from MIT(Mitchell Joachim, Lara Greden and  Javier Arbona-Homar )have conceived a home that doesn't just use "green" design but is itself a living ecosystem.

The concept is the use of  young trees growing  together into a shape that would sustain the foundation of the home.

The gaps could be filled in with soil and growing plants to create small  gardens.

On the interior walls, a mixture of clay that would provide insulation and block moisture.

On south-facing walls, windows made of organic  plastics would absorb warmth in the winter; ground-floor windows on the shady side could draw in cool breezes during hot months.

Water collected on the roof would flow through the house for use by people and plants; waste water would be purified in an outdoor pond with bacteria, fish, and plants that consume organic waste.

This project is aiming primarily sub tropical areas , but the first stage of using eco systems in design of our home is a close reality.

An atlernative proposal is mixing modern material with ecological and living areas.
In area London, a successful example of Eco house are already built .The London scheme will involve at least 1,000 homes, which will be powered entirely by renewable energy sources such as photovoltaic panels, wind turbines and the burning of waste.
