In China, an architect who could not afford living expenses apparently has been living in a 2 meter egg-shaped dwelling on the sidewalk, made of sack bags and bamboo. I posted a link to story which has some pictures in it. All I can say after reading this is I want one too!

If you tried to build that in america and live in it, they'd find some way to confiscate and destroy it. I wonder if he is not breaking any ordinances where he lives..obviously not I suppose, if he's still there.

In the article, the guy said he is doing it because he cannot get a good enough paying job to be able to afford conventional living arrangements. So he used what money he had to build the egg, and he says that living in egg saves him alot of money.

Since the egg has wheels, I am sure he could just move it to another location if he gets hecked about it wherever he happens to be staying.

lol, $954 is a fair bit in China..
Heck, I could buy a cheap caravan here in Australia with that.

I also wonder where he plugs that lamp into..
It's too bright to be battery operated...

I could just see my local council allowing me to park that on a pavement here in OZ..

That is so awesome. Why can't all houses look like this?
Imagine looking over a city of houses and buildings that blend into the landscape. Awesome.

Cheers

Story says cold-proof, then says it's cold inside


Doesn't say if its waterproof

I would imagine that it would be waterproof to an extent, due to the robust sack bag and bamboo walls.

I want the right to dig Native Earth Lodges on unused land in the United States.

For me and the millions of other homeless here.

Bravo, Eggman. Blessings on you and the motorhomeless everywhere.

In the US this would run into the obvious obstacle...

House, 900 bucks..
monthly charges for electricity, land rental, and "permits" - $2,000.

I have to say that he is so talented and brave to do such a thing ,he is also creative ,i like his house ,so alternative ... And i think this is also a irony for the Chinese high housing price...

Well I just read a new article on this, they have taken away his egg house, probably cause they couldn't get any fees from it. I thought it looked great for a young single person.
