A House Built into a Chair

Ted Lott constructed this house frame built into a chair, playing around with what can be called design, and what can be called architecture. From his site:

Craft practices are at once defined and restrained by their connections to tradition. When viewing woodworking in the context of objects made with wood; housing, particularly stick frame construction, emerges as possibly the most widespread use of the material throughout the modern world. Utilizing these contemporary techniques in a studio based practice, it is my hope to further the conversation on how notions of craft fit into the modern world.
