What is the metal siding and how is it attached, what's underneath? - Wow! Also wondering what the colorful panels are. Great work!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Contemporary. This last photo illustrates one vein of contemporary architecture: sustainability. This extreme example, a demonstration home called ScrapHouse spearheaded by Public Architecture, is completely fabricated from salvaged materials: railroad ties, street signs, shower doors, and even phone books. As participating designer Jensen Architects indicate, "some materials were re-invented for their intended purpose," a consideration that makes this project as contemporary as can be. Form does not exist before the building is realized, it is driven by the atypical design palette of salvaged materials.Next: Modern vs. Contemporary — the Interiors Edition
... the same way gold elements add dimensionality to this contemporary ScrapHouse. The house is made from materials that were "reinvented for their intended purpose," the same way the gold leaf was used for nail art.

scrap house - note interesting use of windows where bottom row is larger panes, and each row above has more windows of a smaller dimension, all rows contained within a large square.
