And to learn more about home design, history, and the way people interact with their homes see the Living Rooms section on The New York Times site.

Applications for Education
My school's CAD program now offers a class on "green design." A Home for the Future could be a good resource for those students to learn from. A Home for the Future could also be a neat resource for students in environmental science classes to explore.
