    THE DIGITAL HOUSE

    Bell Travers Willson, a London-based architecture and design studio, has launched a method that harnesses digital design technology and low-volume production methods to build a sustainable alternative to traditional housing. The Digital House is produced using a detailed 3D computer model that contains every construction component. This information is transferred to a computer-controlled router, which rapidly cuts components from sheets of plywood. Next week we'll track the process from model to house.

    TANGO: DANCING OUT OF A BOX

    It takes two to tango, and Moore Ruble Yudell partnered with the Swedish firm of SWECO FFNS Arkitekter AB to design the project "Tango" as their contribution to the 2001 housing exposition in Malmö. Eight vibrantly colored steel and glass towers dance around a landscaped courtyard (photo by Werner Huthmacher). The award-winning block is self-sufficient in energy, and everything from heating to door locks can be individually controlled from a computer keyboard. Next week writer Michael Webb will explain why the apartments are in high demand.
