Change is a constant, yet we often build our homes as static entities that resist change over time. The Open Building movement seeks to change that. In an exclusive webinar for ECOHOME's Vision 2020 program, Tedd Benson, founder and chairman of Bensonwood and Unity Homes, and Stephen Kendall, emeritus professor of architecture at Ball State University–both of whom are recognized as Open Building experts–explain the Open Building concept and its value. The goal of the movement is to change the way architects work to restore the natural dynamic relationship between people and the places in which they live. Learn how separating a home's structure, systems, and interiors may create dynamic buildings that are enabled to last hundreds of years, take a look at some of the technologies and building practices that are being up in place in open buildings, and explore the challenges that have prevented this concept from wide-spread adopting in North America.
