The Cube Project

Via Think Progress, this is a really cool design project – a 10 x 10 x 10 house cube. It’s really advanced, green built and visually quite nice. Sadly with only 2 meters of head height throughout the cube, I probably would not fit in it. I also worry a bit about the odor of a composting solid waste toilet.

I think the green efforts are really cool, but the reality is this is more of cramming things in vertically than, say, designing things that fold on top of themselves or reuse the same space for different functions. Almost all of this is statically positioned. Of course, as a concept, the point is that we can live in much less space, in homes built for less money with green materials and designed to use much lower amounts of energy.
