Geneva-based design studio Bureau A has created the Tadioto Mobile Mini-Skyscraper, a seven-story structure mounted to a bike. The tower on wheels was built in the city of Hanoi by architect Daniel Zamarbide. The structure is multipurpose; its lack of a predefined role means that it can be used as everything from a mobile eatery to a cafe.
The Tadioto Mobile Mini-Skyscraper is so named for a bar and cultural center located in Hanoi. The project was inspired by the city's functional upcycling. According to Bureau A, upcycling is so much apart of Hanoi life that what would sit in a museum in Europe or the U.S. as art is looked upon merely as a normal necessity. The Tadioto Mobile Mini-Skyscraper was shown on a ride that took it from the outskirts of the city to the city center.
