The Align Project, a Rendezvous with Reality, is a one-year demonstration project designed to challenge entrenched ideas about how we live in the U.S. and offer suggestions for how we can align our lifestyles with our changing socio-economic and environmental realities.
The centerpiece of The Align Project is Kasita’s small-footprint, net-zero, connected independent dwelling unit. The precision-engineered home takes advantage of every square foot of space and comes with Kasita’s smart home technology platform, which seamlessly integrates devices, appliances, lighting, and mechanical systems.
Recognizing that sustainable living extends beyond the home, The Align Project also highlights how we can revamp our cities, energy infrastructure, mobility solutions, and finances, emphasizing sustainable choices that align with our moral compass to ensure a flourishing future.
Located outside of Salon by KBIS (next to South Hall) at Design & Construction Week®.
