I love the idea of this modular pre-fab home nicknamed the California Roll. The house doesn’t actually roll up (that’d be crazy) but it does expose itself like an open sushi roll. It uses heat-reflecting panels to deflect the summer heat of the desert and also includes modular skylights and dimmable windows to make inside living as comfortable as possible in the middle of nowhere. A wonderful idea and concept and one that I hope actually gets made into production. [via]
