If you’re looking for an eco-initiative, the Next Generation House certainly isn’t it. Created by Sou Fujimoto Architects, the eccentric house draws upon the classic Japanese tower building game of Jenga and uses a whole lot of rectangular cut cedar logs in its structure. If the gross misuse of forest resources doesn’t irk you enough, then the fact that the insides of the house offer only a 13′x13′x13′ cube space and that too in bits and pieces here and there will get your brains frying for sure.
Apart from offering tenants an unbelievably cramped and claustrophobic space, the house also demands that you use only the hard wooden surfaces for all furnishing purposes like seating, sleeping, eating and storage too!
Not sure how many people will actually want to spend a weekend in this high-on-eco-price ramshackle joint but the picturesque view of the River Kuma in Kumakura, Japan might just sway your mind about this atrophy.
