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.

I find a way to fearlessly provoke your senses and take you by the heart to whatever it is I’m writing about. My sweet spot is creative writing, but for the last 20 years I have been providing freelance content for publications on sustainability and green practices, design, architecture, fashion, and non-profit charity. Recently all wrapped up in producing my first book. I have bounced from NYC to Indianapolis, but my true home is a lovely small town in Central Pennsylvania where there’s a legit drive-your-tractor-to-school-day.
