Tricycle House by PAO + PIDO

Under the theme “The Peoples Future” for the 2012 Get It Louder Exhibition in Beijing, the Tricycle House is a tiny mobile home that built on a simple tricycle. Beijing-Based design team People’s Architecture Office and People’s Industrial Design Office have created a compromise solution for China’s urban residents.

Made with folded plastic, the house can open up to the outside, expand like an accordion for more space, and connect to other houses. The house is man-powered and operates off-the-grid, the interior to be lit by the sun during the day or street lamps at night.

Facilities in the house include a sink and stove, a bathtub, a water tank, and furniture that can transform from a bed to a dining table to a counter top. The sink, stove, and bathtub can collapse into the front wall of the house.

A plurality of bicycle houses can be combined into a Tricycle Garden, which can be planted with not only grass but trees and vegetables.

Inspiration from architects:

Private ownership of land in China does not exist, and The Tricycle House suggests a future embrace of the temporary relationship between people and the land they occupy.
