Impressive Timelapse of the Day: A Multi-Story House Built in Just One Day

Will affordable housing of the future come pre-fabricated and ready to assemble?

This video shows how a three-and-a-half story, fully insulated, fire and water retardant, hurricane-proof house can be constructed in just one day.

The structure shown is HomeShell, the centerpiece of London Royal Academy of Art’s exhibition on Richard Rogers, the architect widely known for the Pompidou Centre in Paris. Designed and erected by Rogers’ own firm, HomeShell has the potential to reduce energy bills by up to 90 percent, as stated on the firm’s website.
