From greenhouse to bubble

Architects have figured it out. Greenhouse people are happy people. They get something extra out of their garden. A greenhouse brings new climate zones in the garden. You go from winter to spring, from autumn to summer, and you can grow crops that are usually only grown in warmer climates. The larger your greenhouse is, the more options you have. However, smaller houses are also great. I have seen people utilize small 64.5 square feet greenhouses so that there was room for both plants and people. If you have a wall and a small garden, you can also get a beautiful lean-to greenhouse. That requires less space.


In warmer countries, they may dream of the cold and in cooler countries, people dream of warmth. The possibilities are not few. On October 4th, you can see the home of the future in Aarhus, Denmark. It is a large dome with a house and garden inside the dome. The idea is to be able to build a house under a bell and thus have a comfortable climate all year round. It is still a vision. Pilot projects cost a lot of money, but the Danish architect behind the project, Kristoffer Tejlgaard, believes that it will not be many years before everyone can change the climate and live in their own little bubble.
