Homes part 3: A Kinder, Gentler Modernism

Tune in to the third instalment of our episode on homes –>

A house made of what?

Experimentation in architecture didn’t die in the 1960s! While Where Cool Came From now knows what was considered cool 60+ years ago, the big question is what’s getting people hot- and-bothered today? Straw bale, baby! And we’ll learn that even though it’s located in the country, an energy-efficient, straw bale home doesn’t have to look like it belongs in The Shire.




After admiring the solar panels on the roof, our host will check out a tiny inner-city home that sips energy like a SmartCar sips gas.

With so much strain on the energy grid, are these the houses of the future?
