HOME Competition Director’s Choice Winner

Team: John Vieweg

The semi truck is going extinct. The advent of electric vehicles will leave fleets of usable machines in the scrap heap. However, this material can serve as a potential resource for new home buyers. Sea level rise, financial instability and an ever changing political sphere warrent mobility. What architectural experiences can fit on the bed of a semi truck? Common construction materials characterize this adaptive technque. Soft items such as pillows and carpet rolls provide spaces for lounging. Qualities such as reflectivity and transparency are used to create seemingly endless interiors. Necessary fixed systems are consigned to a mobile home placed directly on the flatbed.
