the ‘RV prototype house’ (room vehicle) by architect greg lynn is a 1/5th scale model of a residence that increases the living space by rotating in two axes on a robotic base developed for the future primitives exhibition at biennale interieur 2012 in kortrijk, belgium. by reducing the footprint into a single floor, wall and ceiling surface the dwelling brings together intelligent systems, comfort and freedom of motion. the 150m2 area is realized with a 60m2 impression which is composed of a lightweight core made of carbon fiber fabric making the entire mass of the shell less than 50 kilos allowing it to revolve easily.

the reduction of its overall impact brings a new layer of enthusiasm and activity to the typical home, similar to that of an exercise machine or hamster ball. the living environment responds to its surrounding landscape so that it is optimized to the weather, daylight and temperature through its rotational actions. taking influence from the inner hull of a boat, the bespoke dwelling proposes a new typology which was once sedentary, into one based on movement and interaction.

  • the idea is kinda cool. but i does look like a torso of a doll with all the extremities ripped off.

  • bring back Utopia and the radicals.. it starts with projects like these that challenge the general audience. why so negative everyone?
