M-House by Michael Jantzen

Michael Jantzen has been doing creative things in sustainable architecture for over thirty years, well before “prefab” and “net-zero” and became building design buzzwords. The Los Angeles based architect, who was Buckminster Fuller protege in the 70s, cements his well-earned reputation with the M-House, a labyrinthine building powered by alternative energy sources like the sun and wind. 

The structure uses Jantzen’s M-vironment system, which makes use of a variety of components that connect in different ways to a matrix of modular support frames. Designed to function either as a single private vacation retreat or as a high-tech resort complex, the self-sufficient structure consists of a series of rectangular panels attached with hinges to a frame grid of interlocking cubes.
