Harvard University, in collaboration with architectural firm Snohetta and Skanska Technology, is working on an ambitious project, named HouseZero, which is an ultra-efficient building producing more energy than it consumes in a day.

Under the project, the developers are retrofitting the Cambridge, Massachusetts, headquarters of the Harvard Center for Green Buildings and Cities, to demonstrate that existing structures can be modified for less energy consumption, which eventually helps address climate change, writes Dezeen.

The house is being altered with a range of nifty features such as enlarged windows and skylights, glazed solar chimney, ventilation controlled via smart algorithms and room sensors for opening and shutting of windows, notes Digital Trends.
