The house that can survive a TSUNAMI: Waves flow through the building...

• dailymail

In 1820, a landslide on Washington’s Camano Island sent a 4m (13ft) wave into nearby Hat Island, destroying homes and drowning many of the local people.

Now one designer has created a concept house that allows water to flow through it, in an attempt to protect existing residents from the same fate.

The 3,140 square-foot house is located on the northern end of the island and is the work of architect Dan Nelson of Designs Northwest Architects.
