This 24-year old architect, Dia Haifei built an “egg–shaped pod on the sidewalk to evade Beijing’s extreme rent prices. Apparently Haifei was inspired to design and build the structure after seeing a conceptual project named ‘City’s Egg’ which was held at the Shanghai Biennale Exhibition. With using bamboo as the frame and wood chips for insulation, one can sleep warm through the night. The egg-house uses a small solar panel to power a lamp and a handful of other electrical necessities inside, making it functional and livable.” via Juxtapoz.
We are going to double dip here with big-named contemporary artists, as perhaps the biggest of them all at the moment, the 2011 TED Award-winning JR, just released a new short from his exhibition in Shanghai, China last Fall 2010, titled, “The Wrinkles of the City.”
Oh, and JR is really good. They don’t just hand those TED Awards out at SFO.
