Just as we are investing in alternative energy, it is time we began investing in alternative housing.
One in a beautiful landscape looks fine. Try putting up a thousand and see how it looks....
From the page: "the concept provides a foundation for rethinking everyday urban structures, artifacts of the built environment, that we might find new and different uses for as times change."
I'm gonna go ahead and assume this is some sort of joke.
And when a car hits the pole and you are in the house?
It'll never happen, but I love the idea.
The inside of the standard billboard is only about 3 feet wide and full of cross structural supports I believe. You'd more or less be tearing off the entire top section and installing a tall thin house on a large pole. At that point why not just build one from scratch as the only thing you're saving is the pole, and even then it'd take a massive amount of work to retrofit plumbing and all the rest up it, I'd imagine.
As usual, someone comes up with some totally stupid idea, and then tries to pass it off using some pseudo green credentials. It's an utter BS idea. It takes about 30 seconds of thought to come up with a handful of reasons why this will never work, and also is in no way 'green'.
