mobile 1 (chinese box)
There are numerous referential projects that had supported design of
this mobile house: Angelo Invenizzi: Villa Girasole, Mies van der Rohe:
50 by 50, Peter Blake: Pinwheel House, Andrija Mutnjaković: Homobil,
Buckminster Fuller: DDU, Archigram:Plug-in, Kishio Kurokawa: Capsule
House, my "Capsule project" from 1972., Paul Rudolph: Walker Guest
House, but an immediate inspiration was a tiny "Box" /Chinese Treasure
Box ,Ch'ing Dynasty, 1736-1795).
Four pinwheel rotating boxes 330/330/330, inside 300/300/300 cm create
manyfold arrangements – supposely, each box has 10 possible positions
(from 0 – 90 degrees), it makes 10.000 possible mobile arranegements.
Compact, "zero-position", has all four boxes together, and all full
open composition makes an open atrium, very convinient and pleasant
for use in summer period. So, a kind of arrangement is depending very
on weather condition.
