The House Detective: Edinburgh Cube House

ARTOPIATECTURE APPROVED! Mike Page's Edinburgh Cube Project. Ten cubic feet; 6.5 ft headroom; clever stairs; big bed; solar panels earn money in U.K. Go to site for video tour and interactive panorama.


The House Detective: Is Small All Over?

Three stories in NYT House & Garden Section about small housing. Does this mean it's [AMBIGUOUS] all over? Tiny is so cute and coy. Stop using it. Rational housing is not upscale downsized-housing or folk art. 


Image is of "Cowboy" which can be ordered as small as 650 sq ft from form&forest>

The House with No Windows

Three-room, concrete Japanese house with no windows, but with two dramatic light wells on the roof. Entrance is a door at the side. Darkness, starkness, bareness can be cozy. House is a light-trap and the light moves and changes from hour to hour, from day to day, from month to month. A mattress on the floor is all I would need.
