New cloaking technology behind launch of invisible shed

Every year we bring you some incredible designs on Shedworking, but this is probably the most incredible: a Western Red cedar-clad timber building with full electrics and a woodburning stove built to be invisible if you are looking at it from the outside, but with all the usual features inside, including swivel chairs, recycled moss insulation, and a small fridge powered by the wind turbine on top (you can just make out its shadow in the image above). The prototype model - pictured above - is the result of a collaboration between French architects Avril Poisson and Italian timber experts Pesce Daprile. The really clever bit is the invisibility mechanism which is largely done with carefully-concealed mirrors and plenty smoke but there are more details about that in the Guardian newspaper. --------------------------------------------------------
