The Danish company VIPP (famous for its iconic 1939 wastebasket, now in the MOMA) has created a prefab tiny home designed down to the last detail (flashlight included). Their 592-square-foot “plug and play getaway” wasn’t designed to blend into nature, but to float above it; fifty thousand pounds of glass and steel serve as a frame for the surrounding landscape. VIPP designer Morten Bo Jensen explains that the shelter wasn’t designed as a piece of architecture, but an industrial object. The prefab structure is built in a factory and the four modules are transported by truck to the site. The shelter can be constructed in 3 to 5 days using just bolts for the modules and 9,000 screws for the steel plates. The small prefab can house 4 people: 2 on a daybed and 2 in a loft bedroom. The floor-to-ceiling glass walls slide open and closed with mechanical rollers, designed to move the 400 or 500-kilo doors with ease. “We kind of like this idea that you just grab it and slide it open,” explains Jensen, “instead of motorized solutions that would be more different from our philosophy of very mechanical products that just last for a long time.” https://www.vipp.com/en/shelter/the-vipp-shelter/ Original story: http://faircompanies.com/videos/view/vipp-shelter-tiny-prefab-as-precise-industrial-era-appliance/

On the 29th of August of 2005, Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans and its surrounding areas in one of the most catastrophic natural disasters ever to impact the United States. Since then, there has been an energetic wave of rebuilding primarily focused on providing replacement housing to single family home owners while simultaneously improving overall conditions in affected areas. Prior to the hurricane, the citys residential fabric was as diverse as its citizens - with each neighborhood possessing a distinct flavor; various architectural styles were incorporated such as single and doubleshotguns, bungalows, Victorians, Greek Revival, Italianate, and suburban ranches. There are definitedesign trends that can be noted throughout New Orleans from the historic districts dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries, to the raised homes of the 1950s, and finally to the current slab-on-grade designs that prevail today. Given the magnitude of devastation in New Orleans and the expansive scope of the rebuilding, a unique opportunity now exists to make significant changes in the home designs available to residents of New Orleans. Not only can we inspire innovation in codes, living styles, and the aesthetics of homes and communities but we can also nurture a new acceptance of more modern and contemporary architectural styles that fit within the neighborhood contexts, as well as the latest in building methodologies. Residents are now looking to be environmentally responsible but also remain financially conscious, so not only is green becoming a popular concept, but also alternative construction methodologies such as modular and factory-built structures.
