December 18, 2010

Housing in China can be pretty cramped, and also pretty expensive. The architect Dai Haifei decided to abandon the entire system and live in this egg he built on the sidewalk. It cost him $1,000 to build. Here are some more details:

The 6-foot-high structure, which is small enough to fit on a sidewalk, is made of bamboo strips, wood chippings, sack bags, and grass seed that’s expected to grow in the spring.

Thanks, Lawrence
