dc.description.abstract Nanotechnology encompasses an array of technologies, all sharing the common attribute of arising from the science of the scale of nanometres. At this scale many materials exhibit physical properties different from those observable in larger quantities of the same materials. This presents a vast number of opportWlities to develop new materials and systems leading to a corresponding array of new products and processes. There is great interest in exploring how these new materials can be applied in existing and new buildings. A multidisciplinary team led by The Institute for Nanoscale Technology at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), that includes people from a number other institutions within Australia such as the Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organisation (CSlRO) are developing the Nanohouse? The Nanohouse is at the time of writing a concept house, existing in the fonn of architectural drawings, mathematical models and as a 3D computer simulation. The Nanohouse? is being designed to illustrate what uses various nanotechnologies (and other recent innovations) have to offer within the context of a domestic dwelling and also to note the wider applications of these technologies in commercial structures. It is naturally a dynamic project, with the design being modified as new technologies and materials become available. In this paper we describe the methodology used to create the Nanohouse?, and evaluate some aspects of its perfonnance. The aspects that touched on include the architectural design and the Nanohouses overall energy efficiency. en_US
