Zig Zag Cabin

The Zig Zag Cabin by Drew Heath has appeared on pretty much every architectural site on the interweb but for those of you who haven't seen it yet, here is the marvellous construction in New South Wales which Heath calls a a “wheel-less caravan”. There's a great article about it on the Architecture Australia website with words and images by Brett Boardman who writes:
"Drew Heath’s Zigzag House abandons the desire for permanence in architecture and examines minimum living requirements and our relationship with place. Heath speaks of human consumption with open disdain, “We are disgusting as human beings the way we live – we really have lost control… there’d be more space in the world for us to go walking if we reduced our consumption of everything.” This project is an attempt to make an architecture predicated on a questioning of client requests, and realized through formal invention and structural ingenuity rather than large-scale solutions."
