PAO and PIDO used a CNC router to form the plastic Tricycle House, which is made out of folded polypropylene. This is the only plastic that is strong enough to handle the folds that act like an accordion to expand. Unbelievably, the little Tricycle House is equipped with a collapsable sink, stove, and bathtub, as well as a water tank and transforming furniture.

Human powered, the Tricycle House is completely off-grid and because it is translucent, it gets its lighting from either the sun during the day or exterior lights at night. A couple could survive with one portable house and a Tricycle Garden – as depicted in these fabulous images.
