  • strangley it reminded me of barcelona.

    A mate and I spent a week at the Vitra fire station surveying it for a uni architecture project in cough 1995. It had just stopped being a functioning fire station and was being prepared to become a chair museum... Zaha always went on about how the state of readiness of the fire engines and firemen gave the building an implied extra sense of movement and without them it was kind of a sorry place.. You did feel that you had be moving the whole time you were inside and the thought of it becoming a place to look at things for sitting down on was pretty ironic..

    Oh and the big cantilever on the front was sagging a bit.

    Still love it though.

  • nah, it's in Switzerland.

    Sure is..

  • We stopped off here on the way back - even better..

  • great thread!

    I'd like one of these that I can trailer around through my life

    My perfect home will most certainly have one of these! At 22 I already have too many books and you can get so many gems from charity shops and Amazon for so cheap that I suspect that by the age of 40 I'll have quadrupled my collection. The satisfaction of looking at a wall of books and knowing that you've read every single one must be fantastic too.

    Really liking this thread already, mad rep to the coppiThat

  • Would love to be able to pull up to this in my Mercedes 280 SL

  • 250 GT California I reckon

  • i was thinking a fiat dino or an old Volvo

  • back to sheds. Nothing amazing but i would be happy with something like this at the bottom of the garden but slighty more study inside with work bench and stufff

  • I'd like to have a garden to ponder putting a shed in

    one of these maybe

    croydon council refused a friend of mine permission to build a container home a few years ago.
    he wanted permission to build one of the houses that are made of three or four containers.

  • They're making an entire temporary shopping centre in Shoreditch out of containers: http://inhabitat.com/boxpark-pop-up-ship­ping-container-mall-nurtures-the-communi­ty-and-small-brands/

    I'm not sure if it will look crap or fabulously modern.

  • fabulously crap?

    I just want the one I think. And in the sticks over in Sweden. Possibly with no permission at all

  • My brothers girlfriends brother(!) lives in the woods in Devon. He built a hut like those up there ^ and lives rent free on some farmers land, doing just enough to get by.

    It's all very basic, his bath is outside! But what a way of life.

    Anyway, I'll find a picture. This fits the thread right?

  • totally

    Let me see if I find more on my HD and I'll PM you.

  • one of the homes i saw in last year's open house is an old water tank. that's it on top of the building. i thought they did a really good job with it. a lot bigger than a container.
