Eighty miles from New York City’s bustling core is a rotating wooden structure, resembling an alien spacecraft and designed to withstand nearly any disaster. It is an ecological mansion of epic proportions that resides atop a 28-acre slot of land in New Paltz, with a number of unusually futuristic features, especially for a home carved out of organic wood and designed to fit snugly with the surrounding forested environment.

By simply pushing a button, the cylindrical home spins around like a massive carousel.
