It’s hard to imagine where we’ll be in 3018. Commuting to the moon for work? Or fighting for scraps in a postnuclear wasteland?
Either way, the Rice house, a fortified megamansion in Atlanta now on the market for $14.7 million, will still be standing.
The architects of this fortress were given a simple mandate: Make sure the 36,000-square-foot structure on 3.5 acres will survive the next 1,000 years. They designed an ultraluxe family home that looks perfectly normal from the outside, but hides top-of-the-line security features such as fortified walls, bulletproof windows and doors, a three-year supply of food, independent sources of water, electricity, and heat, and a 15,000-square-foot bunker with multiple exits.
