Tales of Space and Time

The idea of a shed on wheels is a popular concept and here's a rather beautiful example from Heather and Ivan Morison (mentioned earlier today) called Tales of Space and Time. It's a Folkestone-based refurbished former army Bedford Green Goddess fire truck, customised as a kind of 'escape vehicle' using plenty of Douglas Fir to include living space and a small library of science fiction (hence the nod to HG Wells, who lived in Folkestone, in its title). Photos: Wig Worland.The Morisons have also been shortlisted for the Wales section of the Artists Taking the Lead project and hope to build three new tai unnos in Wales. Here's what they say:
The function of each will be decided upon locally; it could be a simple shelter, a meeting room, a home, a meditative place, a community space or even a dovecote perhaps. They will also be fabricated locally, highlighting and developing existing skills and craftspeople, with each new ty unnos being celebrated in the final communal raising of the building.
