Text description provided by the architects.

The Taliesin Mod.FabTM is an example of simple, elegant, and sustainable living in the desert.
The one-bedroom, 600-square-foot prototype residence relies on panelized construction to allow for speed and economy on site or in a factory.
It can be connected to utilities or be “unplugged,” relying on low-consumption fixtures, rainwater harvesting, greywater re-use, natural ventilation, solar orientation, and photovoltaics to reduce energy and water use.
