Beijing Egg House

Dai Haifei, a 24-year-old architect in Beijing, China, found an ingenious solution to live rent-free. He built himself a mobile egg-shaped house that is powered by the sun. The 6-foot-high structure, which is small enough to fit on a sidewalk, is made of bamboo strips, wood chippings, sack bags, and grass seed that’s expected to grow in the spring. The pod features a solar panel on the roof that powers a lamp in the cozy space. The house cost around $1,000 to build (6427 yen), according to China Daily. It seems Haifei has taken the trend of living in tiny spaces to a whole new level and is definitely another case study example of antimimeticisomorphism in action!

As part of the antimimeticisomorphism series, I am constantly looking for fresh new ideas. Today’s video is a bike or stairmaster – you decide!

Take time to appreciate the view
