Glass Houses Revisited

People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, fits, or tantrums.

This, by the way, is the glass house concept of architect Carlo Santambrogio, and the article, with its illustrations, can be read here.

The article notes that, were the house to be built, there'd be a special heating system to keep the interior climate human-friendly whatever the outside weather. I wonder whether they've thought of just using a vacuum between panes so that there'd be nothing to conduct heat or cold through the walls. Then again... even with a vacuum, there'd still be a need for a heating/cooling system. Unless the idea is to return to layered furs and nakedness as a way of adapting to interior temps.

I think we need complete transparency on all issues . . .
