Innovation pod: Solar-powered garden office

This intriguing structure was built and designed by Ottawa's prototypeD and is a 'mobile digital media lab' for MadeMill. It is called 'The Innovation Pod' and is a modular building built out of corrugated steel with a curved roof aimed at the tiny house and shedworking market. Most interestingly, it is powered by solar power and heated via propane. Here's what the owners say about it:
The digital media lab is a space where the public can come explore new digital technologies, like virtual reality. The prototypeD team can import blueprints for a new building into VR so that a person can experience the space as though they are walking through it in real life. The lab is also a space for workshops on solar power, and different artistic projects, for example the mural in this tiny house is a collaborative project by multiple artists, including Komi Olaf, Asma Inam, and Allan André.
