Japanese architect Jo Nagasaka along with the Schemata Architecture Office have come up with a contraption that supposedly "rethinks" how much space we need for day-to-day activities; approximately 30 square feet.
This cube is to contain a hammock to sleep on, a Japanese-style recessed desk, and a sink, toilet and shower. Nagasaka has quickly put out the disclaimer that the Paco home is not an actual stand alone solution but intent is to supplement your particular living situation. It could be a beach house, a portable office — anything, really, as long as you find a way to lug it into place and hook up the water. Huh?
I don't get the point of this dumpster looking box as I can not for the life of me see what anyone would want to do with it especially when a more comfortable, more easily transportable and convenient solution exists (RVs anyone?). I had initially thought that this might be another "Universal World House" attempt until I realized that it didn't even have a kitchen. As it is, it looks like either a really well sanitized pod in some penitentiary or a cell in an insane ward, missing the pads on the walls. Nagasaka really needs to start "thinking outside the box!"
