The New Urban Guild founded Project:SmartDwelling to redefine the American house in dramatically smaller, smarter, and more sustainable terms, on Original Green foundations. The Guild began with lessons they learned during the Katrina Cottages initiative, which began with designs of several dozen Guild members in the weeks after Hurricane Katrina. The tragedy of the hurricane may recede into history, but those lessons continue to grow.
Today, half a decade after Project:SmartDwelling was first announced, the first SmartDwellings are rising on distant shores. Expect more shortly from a number of Guild members.
