M3house + chinese practice UAO creations collaborated to produce ‘blox’, a prefabricated prototypical home intended to serve an affordable housing option. presented at the 2011 shenzhen & hong kong bi-city biennale of urbanism \ architecture during the exhibition ’10 million units: housing an affordable city’, the innovative unit reflects an ancient chinese idea for self-sustained settlements within the city. the small dwelling continues tradition by adapting to dense built environments, addressing spatial issues within established contexts.

merging the words ‘box’ and ‘block’, the elevated white cube contains the cooking, dining, living and sleeping area within a unified space while the bathroom is placed within a smaller adjoining volume. inhabitants may access personal balcony from both rooms. a form of temporary architecture, the structure may be placed upon non-constructible land or implanted into urban public spaces.

  • It would need to be elevated a small amount at least, as it could not sit on the ground.

    I think the furniture drawn on the ground is cool, and if they actually put furniture in there it would look a lot smaller.

    I do not see how it solves any density issues, when you could build a standard high rise building and stack 50 units on top of each other.

    would work better as disaster relief or temporary housing for mining or remote areas.

  • Why is it on stilts? Can they be stacked? Is it plastic? Is that glass? Why not put a model out with actual furniture instead of marks on the floor? How much does it cost? Can it be mass produced?
