Saw a blurb in Austin Magazine about the local architect firm Specht Harpman and their prairieHouse, a concept house based on a converted gas station. And while Specht Harpman have designed structures that have actually gotten built, it's their concepts that are the coolest. Their zeroHouse, a fully self sustainable structure, has shown up all over the interwebs, and their windCatcher was designed in anticipation of the coming desertification due to global warming. Cool, or rather hot, stuff. More images at their site.
