Pod life

An interesting piece - with some excellent pictures - in the Daily Telegraph about the shedlike pods used in the BBC series Castaway. They have now been relcoated to Cover Park Arts Centre on the Rosneath peninsular in Scotland and are now being used as homes for artists in residence. Timber-framed but with a zinc cladding and a fresh roof membrane, the interiors are decked out in Habitat decor and they are used from April to November by an international range of artists and writers. Sadly, architect Andy McAvoy who designed the pod specifically for the BBC show says there is no immediate plan for commercial production. More information from Cove Park Arts Centre.
