Project Description

The Smart Home: Green + Wired, an exhibit at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry, demonstrates Architect Michelle Kaufmann's imagination in the use of materials that minimize maintenance and the environmental footprint. This home of the future features green roofs expanding usable space to include gardens and walkways that are eco-friendly, while allowing efficient drainage and maximum durability.

Bison Level.It Pedestals are accurately engineered for achieving level decking surfaces on rooftops and offer easy installation and maintenance. Bison Ribbed Ipê Wood Tiles were used as the decking material and were easily installed due to their modular design. Level.It Pedestals use a unique bottom up leveling system that ensures the system is stable and drains efficiently while creating level decks over sloping surfaces.

Architect: Michelle Kaufmann
