The Sidewalk Pod Life

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.

Oh, and JR is really good. They don’t just hand those TED Awards out at SFO.
