If the Flying Black House were on AirBnB, it would undoubtedly be one of the company's most sought-after listings. In reality the tiny suspended house, built by Czech firm H3T Architeckti, is more a design study than anything else. It's suspended from a bridge via several steel cables with a ladder providing access. The space is small, measuring around 43 square feet, and includes a sleeping loft.

The Flying Black House admittedly looks a bit creepy, but once you get over the potential scariness of living under a bridge, you begin to realize just what this space represents. People around the world are leaving rural and suburban areas in favor of cities, a reverse migration which has contributed to housing crises and rising rents worldwide. The Flying Black House is an artistic reminder that the solution to a lack of housing may sometimes be an unconventional, less-is-more approach.
