Casa Básica Volumen habitable de prestaciones básicas; plegable, hinchable, reversible (Prototipo experimental en poliéster metalizado). Colección del MOMA de Nueva York. Nuestro hábitat se ha convertido en un escenario para el consumo, en el que un ilimitado número de productos satisfacen una serie de necesidades creadas a partir de unas relaciones complejas y difícilmente controlables. Culturas que guardan una relación más directa con su entorno nos demuestran que el hábitat puede ser entendido de una manera más esencial y razonable. Aprendiendo de estas actitudes y utilizando la más avanzada tecnología, propongo una casa casi inmaterial que se hincha a partir del calor de nuestro propio cuerpo o del sol, tan versátil que dándole la vuelta nos protege del frío o del calor, tan ligera que flota y que, además, se puede plegar y llevar en un bolsillo.

Sink and Toilet in one The Roca W + W (wash basin + water closet) is as eco-friendly as it is good looking. Designed by the Roca Innovation Lab and Italian architects Gabriele and Oscar Buratti, the W+W fuses a washbasin and lavatory into a single piece and applies new Roca “Reusing Water” technology. This new technology reduces water consumption by 25% when compared with standard dual-flush toilets by re-using water from the washbasin to fill the lavatory cistern. It also employs for the first-time an automatic cleansing system which prevents bacteria and odors from entering the water cistern. via:: Roca
