Chameleon Cabin by White Arkitekter

View all 10 Photos

White Arkitekter of Sweden have constructed a four corner efficiency entirely of paper. Yes, paper!  It’s amazing properties change in appearance with the angle at which it is looked at. This illusion is called the Chameleon Cabin meant to reflect architecture’s ever changing nature. The paper material used here is called Miniwell. It weighs in at 100 kilograms with an interior space of 7 square meters. A warm sunshine yellow was used to paint the inside walls. Outside, the facade is white then striped with black then marble-like as you move your position left to right around it. This project was only made possible with the help of printer  Göteborgstryckeriet and brand agency Happy F + B.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
