A dwelling that will change the American dream
In the beginning, portable architecture was born of necessity—pre-fabricated and mobile homes were cheap to buy and simple to construct. But today, in an era of digital design, when shipping containers are turned into homes and habitats arrive via delivery truck, modular housing is stuck in a rut. The Flower House represents a new state of mind and an experimental way of living.
Taking a playful approach to the idea of the summer home, the Flower House is the new quintessence of transportable architecture. Enhancing the perception of space inside and out, this structure is about learning to love temporary living outside of the common box. Like art, architecture has the ability to change both our culture and our social conditions over time. The Flower House attempts, refreshingly, to remind the designer how to play, to maintain the innocence of childhood, and to leave room for spontaneity.
