The eco-friendly design and the construction are based on Hybrid Architecture principles (high-tech/low-tech). It is built with low-tech low-cost traditional adobe walls and with a high-tech ETFE lightweight cantilevered metallic frame canopy. An outer layer of water repellent curtains protects the entire house from the outside.
