Here in Phoenix, we have Metrocenter - Arizona's largest mall when it was built in the early 70's, now it's the dirt mall and dying fast.

These eight examples of modern mountain houses provide all of the coziness and warmth of traditional structures, but do so with a modern twist and minimal environmental impact.
