Dutch architect imagines an eco city


As the effects of climate change are felt across the globe, architecture firms make an effort to be kinder to the environment. Dutch designer Raimond de Hullu recently unveiled his futuristic housing concept which looks like overgrown garden sheds. It's a little bit Ewokian, a little bit New Urbanist and totally impressive.

   Hullu told Gizmag:"I grew up [in the countryside] in southern Holland and spent much time being in the forest or at the beach. That is why I love nature and when my father started to build a house I fell in love with architecture. I always was fascinated by both and passionate about creating a fusion between both."




   Titled OAS1S, the project aspires to be the world's first 100 percent eco city. The unique homes will be constructed from recycled wood and will run completely on renewable energy. They will also be completely covered with vegetation – with no sign of cars or overhead power lines.
