by Ted Savage / June 17, 2013
A technically sophisticated tiny house that is entirely autonomous, self-contained, off-grid, mobile, Diogene Cabin by Renzo Piano & RPBW for Vitra, at 2.4 sqm (62 sqf) and 1.2 tons, can go anywhere by truck.

The wood structure is clad in aluminum paneling and incorporates solar cells, a rainwater tank, a biological toilet, natural ventilation, and triple glazing, supplying its own electricity and water, and insulation against a range of climates, providing living area, kitchen and bathroom with shower.


Initially a labor of love for the Pritzker Prize-winning architect and his Renzo Piano Building Workshop, it is now developed with Swiss furniture maker, Vitra, and is currently on display as a public prototype possibly headed for production. In contrast, Piano's 72-storey The Shard, completed in London in 2012, is the European Union's tallest building.
