Last year we reported on 2by4 Architects' Recreational Island House, a particularly appealing vacation home constructed on a small island in Loosdrecht, the Netherlands.

Though we often hear complaints that modern architecture can't hold a candle to older buildings, few structures have as short a shelf-life as Alex Chinneck's latest creation. Following his Covent Garden-based levitating market building, the artist has returned with another architectural oddity.
