Taku-Tanku


TAKU-TANKU
Saitama, JAPAN, 2014 - Competition entry
In collaboration with Takahiro Fukuda

TAKU-TANKU is a travelling little house. Carried by one or two persons or by a bicycle, by a car or potentially even by a boat, TAKU-TANKU is made out of water tanks and can travel through many landscapes to serve as companion and shelter but also as a sculpture that celebrates the vital role of water in our lives.

TAKU-TANKU is an eco-friendly project that can be easily assembled, built with off-the-shelf and re-purposed materials. The structure is composed by two 3,000 liter water tanks connected by a ring of wood that frames the entrance.
