Das Rollende Hotel. “Capsule hotels are in vogue right now. German tour company, Rotel was always ahead of the game by providing capsule hotels on wheels since 1945. No matter how much you might enjoy staying in a five star hotel, you will always be stationary, trapped in one district. So, to feed your sense of novelty and adventure, you decide to book yourself on a Rotel bus. What next? Well, first you choose your tour from hundreds of options all around the world. If the wilds of Africa are not your thing, perhaps the vast planes of central Russia are. Or maybe the frozen wilderness of the Arctic will appeal or what about exotic Ecuador? On the bus, you ride in passenger seats during the day and sleep in 6x6x3ft capsules at night. There is a large kitchen on board for food but you may have to go a few days until you reach a shower as there is not one on the bus. But who could complain about the smell of unwashed passengers when you are waking up in a new and exciting location every day.”
Mititai || I got the opportunity to design & build a very special project. I was asked to create a mobile bathroom unit with 2 showers, 2 toilets, a laundry area and a "powder room". All that with a budget limit as my only boundary. It will be the first time that I will be part of ALL the steps of a construction project to final design touches. Here is a picture of the structure that we recently finished. 💪 Thanks to Kerry & Edith our hosts and clients for this amazing opportunity. I might build my own tiny house back in Canada now!

prometo que voltarei a partilhar mais regularmente em breve, mas para já mostro-vos um desafio diferente: estou imensamente agradecida por me ter sido dada a oportunidade e de ter tido um voto de confiança por parte do Serviço Educativo do Museu da @fundacao_serralves para reproduzir os maravilhosos desenhos* de Yona Friedman no âmbito do Projecto Anual com Escolas, este ano com a temática "Arquitecturas Móveis". Visitem até dia 9 de Setembro e, em conjunto, construamos novas cidades!
montagem e produção: SE Artes + Cariátides ✨
