Description

It can be relocated to virtually any outdoor site, where it will provide the basics for everyday life: sleeping for two, kitchen, shower, and composting toilet. Made of a variety of materials and premanufactured components, it generates its own electricity, collects and distributes rainwater, and composts human waste using only the natural dynamics of the site.
The project was constructed in 1998 for the Fabrications Exhibition at the Wexner Center for the Arts, in Columbus, Ohio.
