RV (Room Vehicle) PROTOTYPE
RV PROTOTYPE House is a 1/5th scale model of a house that increases living space by rotating in two axes on a robotic base. In addition to a floor in one orientation, one wall and the ceiling surface can be rotated as new floors. 150m2 of living surface is realized within a 60m2 footprint. Made of a lightweight cored carbon fiber fabric the entire shell weighs less than 50 kilos allowing it to rotate freely.
The robotic model will be on exhibition at INTERIEUR 2012: Future Primitives from October 20-28 in the Kortrijk Xpo, Hall 4.
