Mobitecture


Description
In Mobitecture: Architecture on the Move, architecture and design writer Rebecca Roke celebrates mobile architecture in all its variety. From the functional and utilitarian to the artistic and inventive, as well as plenty of structures that are a blend of both, Mobitecture is a look at the ways this prehistoric practice is gaining in popularity today. Roke has divided this compact handbook into eight chapter based on each project’s primary means of mobility—humans, no wheels, one and two wheels, three wheels, four wheels, five + wheels, sleds and water. Each entry is also accompanied by details on the structure and its creator, as well as information on how many people it accommodates and the materials it is crafted from. Over 250 photographs invite us to explore everything from chic houseboats that make the most of urban waterways to miniature homes that can be towed from place to place by tricycle to wearable tents designed as a practical solution to pressing social issues, such as homelessness and the refugee crisis. Mobitecture: Architecture on the Move is perfect for those with a love for inventive architecture and design or those who are wanderers at heart.
