The Tricycle House and Garden is a sustainable mobile home with its design and construction inspired by the shape and movement of an accordion. The playful designed is also being described as the “adult cardboard box fort box.”
The People’s Architecture Office (PAO) and People’s Industrial Design Office (PIDO) in Beijing developed the clever modular home as a single-person dwelling for those who wish to live in the city but simply cannot afford it due to increasing property prices.
The home is constructed from polypropylene, a lightweight but strong, wear-resistant plastic. The plastic also acts as a lighting source due to its translucency, obtaining its light from the sun by day and from streetlights at night.
