The Tornado-Proof House That Senses Changes in Weather

The Tornado-Proof House That Senses Changes in Weather

Tornado-proof housing may not sound sexy, but the detail and process behind these futuristic homes might arouse your design senses. Kinetic Architecture is at the forefront in creating sustainable, disaster-resistant, and environmentally sensitive homes, using hydraulic levers, clear insulation, and photo-catalytic coatings to sense the high velocity winds associated with thunderstorms and tornadoes. Oh yeah, did we mention the houses move in and out of the ground when sensing a change in weather? That's right, sensing. While these homes may not be common any time soon, it's worth getting the first look.
