Today Architectural Digest tours a futuristic home nestled among the trees in Malibu, California. If you were to imagine life on Mars your mind might conjure an image similar to this extraordinary residence. Built by architect Ed Niles in 1992, his experimental builds have been redefining the architecture of Southern California for decades. The innovative design features a long structure with modular rooms that can be unhooked and rearranged along the house’s spine. Join Ed as he talks you through the creative process behind this architectural marvel.
