Housing prototype for the twenty first century: Single family housing
Kondejewski, Nicholas A.
Housing construction and technology in the United States has slowly improved over the last 100 years. Since the end of VWVll, buildings in general, until the energy crises in the late 70s, have become more inefficient in their use of energy. Though there have been breakthroughs in new construction materials, which make better use of our natural resources. Most new housing in this country takes advantage of only a small number of these products. Furthermore, many new technologies have become available that can greatly improve our use of energy, including independent generation of power, wireless connection to information technologies, and greatly improved climate control systems. Most of which have not been incorporated into today's U. S. homes.
