The mobile California Roll House by Violent Volumes was designed to be assembled and disassembled in record time. It is a project able to show us how design and technology can join their efforts to make enjoyable to live also one of the most human-unfriendly environment, the desert. Made from fibre-reinforced plastic and supported by carbon trusses, the material that is wrapped around the shell extends out onto the ground as a kind of platform for activities, night time dining, and in general to distinguish between the cube and its surrounding landscape. To maximize space, doors are automated using hydraulic power, and bedrooms are separated using either curtain dividers or bookshelves. In addition to being very interesting to look at, this home’s microclimate – controlled electronically – is actually very comfortable. During the heat of the day, the glass panels’ transparency can be manipulated to let in very little light, and later, when it’s cooler, daylighting can be extended. Modularized skylights permit even further light.”
