'Coodo' Mobile Living: A Modular Structure That Adapts To Its Natural Surroundings

'Coodo' Mobile Living: A Modular Structure That Adapts To Its Natural Surroundings | sustainable architecture | Scoop.it

The coodo opens a whole new way into nature, called Mobile Living. Smaller and less costly than a traditional house, the structure consists of less material, requires less land and can be situated in places that normally would not be buildable.


A coodo's fundament consists of a standardized frame construction upon which individual surfaces, colors, appliances, furniture and decoration can be applied. These personal design choices can be changed by the next owner because the coodo is designed as a modular system.

Two years ago, ASU engineering students Gabrielle Palermo & Susanna Young discovered they were each working on projects to turn shipping containers into clinics for developing countries. Thanks to an Student Initiative grant, they received $10,000 to put toward developing that idea. Then it was a matter of learning how to do so...

Kengo Kuma’s Modern Interpretation of an 800-Year-Old Japanese Hut

Kengo Kuma’s Modern Interpretation of an 800-Year-Old Japanese Hut | sustainable architecture | Scoop.it

Kengo Kuma’s version of the humble dwelling is a transparent temporary shelter dubbed “Hojoan 800 years later” and it is currently on display at Kyoto’s Shigamo Shrine.

This modernized version of Buddhist monk Kamono Chomei’s portable hut immortalized centuries ago in the influential essay ”Hojo-ki” (“An Account of My Hut”).  ”Hojo-an After 800 Years,” on display at Kyoto’s Shimogamo Jinja Shrine, is a tribute to Chomei’s efficient home, often regarded as a prototype for Japan’s compact housing. Reflecting the mobility of the original structure, Kuma’s hut is constructed of ETFE sheets that can easily be rolled up. Working in combination with a cedar structure and powerful magnets, the soft architecture becomes a single, more structured unit.
