The fabHouse project is about building a self-sufficient house (a Fab Lab) from the ground with digital fabrication tools (FabLab equipment) and local sustainable materials. The fabHouse is being build in Næstved, Denmark, and the future FabLab called FabLab Danmark will be up-and running when the house is errected may 2012.
At the the Mega-Makerlab the fabHouse project will be making a prototype of a facade element for the self-sufficient house they are planning to build solely with digital fabrication tools. This will involve laser cutting a prototype model. During the Maker-lab this model will be tested and changed in further parametric design and genetic algorithms especially in relation to movements of the sun and the energy optimization in the shape of the house.
