You’ve spent countless hours playing the beloved video game Tetris, twisting and rotating the varying tetriminos as they fell down your screens and fit into place. But, did you ever think that one day you could inhabit one of these idiosyncratic pieces?
Designed by Chinese Studio Liu Lubin, the modular “Micro-House” is built around the ability to shift, stack, and fit together individual units of dwelling, much like the pieces of Tetris. The units each focus on a single daily activity, such as resting, cooking, or working, and are built with a fiber-reinforced composite structure for easy transportation and assembly. Developed to ensure personal privacy while still meeting China’s strict land use policy, a prototype of the minimal home is currently on display in a Beijing park. Let’s just avoid stacking the home in lines, less it disappear. We’ve got more photos below!
