Do you feel sometimes like ditching your complicated house and lifestyle and opting for a simpler one? Inspired by yuris, tipis, and igloos, designer John Paananen wanted to see if living in such an iconic spire would work in today's modern world. The â€œhouseâ€ temporarily existed at Cranbrook Academy in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan for 7 months.
Unlike old tipis, this one used pvc siding, polypropylene sheeting, engineered timber, polycarbonate supports, and a bunch of other very circa 2007 building materials. The erect dimensions came out to be 16 feet tall, 18 feet in diameter.
