Behold Motus, the Shape Shifting House

This building, Motus House (motus: move), is just a prototype for now, although according to its architect, Todd Fix of FIX d, locations in the Hamptons are being considering for it. So what moves? The main living area features a moving insulated shell and brise soleil over glass panels. The screen and shell move on tracks and can be fully encapsulated, which permits the owner to enjoy variable levels of privacy, sunlight, heat gain and air flow, either automatically or manually. It's similar to adding or removing layers of clothing to reflect the weather. Also, it feels like you're living in a science fiction movie, just as a bonus.
