Japanese Concrete-pod

concrete-pod-kazuya-morita

Japanese architect, Kazuya Morita, created the Concrete-pod; a dome shaped, micro-space hideaway for private and public use. The dome holes connect the indoor with the outdoor environment increasing our sensitivity for deep relaxation and contemplation in nature.

 

Made from the fiber reinforced concrete, which is the mixture of white cement and light-weight aggregate and glass fiber, the pod diameter and height is 1700mm each, thickness of shell is 15mm only. To get a perspective, a minor axis of a hen’s egg is about 40mm and thickness is 400 micron.

    Its a good idea you should attach a smaller buble on one side so you can put a sleeping bag in it. It looks like an igloo that I made once that was hardly big enough to fit in
