How To Build Your Own Living Structures OR what I’ve been doing with my day

Making surfaces (above), thinking about universal joints (bottom), reading up about Ken Isaacs and his Living Structures

“The modular design of the microhouse is based on stacked tetrahedrons, which can be moved in and around each other providing shelter and dividing living space in a creative way. (…) Isaacs covers the philosophical meanings of surplus and uses the designs as a means of addressing life as whole; a simple place (…) that has a low impact on the surrounding natural environment.” VIA

More on this later. NB. upgraded from cocktail sticks
