The Absent House

Architect Fernando Abruña Charneco prioritizes nature in his ingenious designs, including a self-sufficient house, a parachute house, and a solar electric car. In the 1970s, critics scoffed at his “less is more” technique – inspired by mentor R. Buckminster Fuller. Now, however, his innovations exemplify the green architecture movement. Amidst the doomsday discussions of the consequences of climate change discussions, The Absent House offers a hopeful and proactive message that we can live sustainably while preserving the planet for future generations. Directed and produced by Rubén Abruña.

Introduced by a representative from the National Building Museum.
