Description: Don't miss your chance to spend a weekend touring the "Greenest Home in Chicago" at the Museum of Science and Industry! To help celebrate its newly redesigned Smart Home: Green + Wired exhibit, the Museum is offering Apartment Therapy readers a special tour! The Smart Home is a fully-functioning, three-story, modular "green" home — built right on the Museum's grounds — that highlights unique eco-friendly technologies for the 21st century. In addition, the winner will receive a night's stay at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Chicago and dinner at the Park Grill located in Chicago's Millennium Park...
On the Smart Home tour, you'll discover just how easy, beautiful and high-tech it can be to live green. The Smart Home interior features an open, airy layout; bold colors; modern furniture; and innovative gadgets and products. The kitchen countertops are made with colorful recycled glass, the garage features a do-it-yourself workshop where you can repurpose old items, the nursery boasts a bamboo crib, and much of the furniture is from resale shops and has been recovered or repainted to give it a new life. A high-tech home automation system greets you when you walk in the door with updates on energy usage, and occupancy sensors in the home can monitor activity and automatically turn off lights, the television and music when no one is in a room.
