The world's first water-house has been designed by Hungarian architect Mátyás Gutai who is a students at the University of Tokyo.
The native of Kecskemét introduced the prototype of the design to the public in his hometown. The building's walls could be made either of transparent materials or fully closed components: After assembling the structure it is filled with water. Watch the video for a more detailed explanation.
The so-called liquid cooling panel simultaneously heats and stores solar energy, thus the structure essentially acts as a passive house. Gutai said negotiations were underway with several companies regarding the sale of the invention. He hopes that very soon we'll see water houses all over the world.
