This is the ultimate tiny house: Plus, it's recycled AND green AND is suspended in the air!

This is the ultimate tiny house: Plus, it's recycled AND green AND is suspended in the air!

Via the Dish , this art installation in downtown San Francisco is the ultimate tiny house. It’s seven by eight by 11 feet, and it’s suspended 40 feet in the air. Plus, it’s recycled AND green: It’s made of 100-year-old reclaimed barn wood, and powered by off-grid solar. Among other ideas, the project is meant to communicate “a new home front in the remaining voids of San Francisco” and “the arrogance of westward expansion,” according to designboom. While we now think it’s awesome and perhaps necessary to inhabit tiny spaces, for pioneers, it was just practical. Now, we’ve gotten so rich, there’s no space on the ground for even the tiniest of houses — we have to hang them off the sides of buildings instead. With the West won, there’s nowhere to build but up.
