Amazing small egg shaped house in Beijing

Share on Facebook Buzz this

A young Chinese designer Daihai Fei has built himself a sustainable egg-shaped house and spent the last two months living in it.

He came to Beijing to attend the university. Now, after graduation, he has become somewhat of a local celebrity, after people started noticing he lives in an egg. Rents in China’s capital are very high, so living in a conventional home meant Daihai had to spend most of his income on rent, and that was not an option for this resourceful designer. In just two months time, and with a budget of only 6,400 yuan ($960), Daihai managed to build his very own mobile home.

Truly inspiring.



He has all the necessary facilities, including a bed, a small sink, a lamp powered by a small solar panel and even a tiny bookshelf.



Daihai Fei built his amazing egg-house on a bamboo frame, covered with various insulating materials, and topped with a layer of stitched bag. The bags are filled with sawdust and grass seeds, which he sprays with water regularly, to help the grass grow faster. Inspired by the grass-covered roofs of Norway, he knows the grass will over greater protection for his home.

Cecelias flowers

Share on Facebook Buzz this
Cecelia Webber creates images of flowers entirely constructed from photographs of the human body. Her work consists of only the naked human body, often her own, photographed in the most peculiar of positions then painstakingly overlaid using Photoshop to form the familiar shapes of petals, stamen and stem. Truly amazing!
