presentation by Joe Wheeler,
Professor of Architecture + Design at Virginia Tech University
on Manufacturing FutureHAUS.
This revolutionary prototype
for the home of the future, with
designs that lend themselves to
modular room and furnishings
manufacture, has been expanded
and presented at KBIS over the
past four years, with prototypes
for the kitchen, bath, living
room, bedrooms and home of-
fices have been developed. 25
industry partners, including Cali-
fornia Closets, provided design
expertise to maximize function
and aesthetics. Grad students
and architects at the university
wield power tools, operate CNCs,
and laminate panel as they have
brought the project to fruition.
Wheeler’s multidisciplinary effort
has been the subject of a TEDx
presentation, which he will share.
The inaugural Woodworking
Network Leadership Forum overall is designed as a TEDx-style
program for wood manufacturers, a top-level conference with a
fast-paced briefings format.
