The Transforming Tiny Home measures just 7.7 sq m (83 sq ft), and was built for an estimat...

The tiny living community is filled with enthusiasts who think outside the box in a bid to turn what's essentially a shed into a viable home at minimal cost. Pacific Northwest resident Scott Brooks offers a great example of what can be achieved with a shoestring budget under the right circumstances, with the recently-completed Transforming Tiny Home, which was built for an estimated cost of under US$500.  Read More

We recently heard about an ambitious proposal drawn up by Vincent Callebaut to transform Paris into a sustainable city. Planning Korea has also taken a stab at imagining what form architecture in the city could take in its proposal dubbed L’air Nouveau de Paris (or New Paris air), and it's just as bonkers as Callebaut's concept.  Read More

What do you do if you're an award-winning architect in need of a new home office, and you don't want to extend or alter your impressive heritage-listed home? Well, if you happen to be Australia's Max Pritchard, you roll your sleeves up and get busy building yourself an equally impressive forest retreat in your garden.  Read More

The ElectricMood folding electric scooter

We've covered our fair share of last-mile electric vehicles here at Gizmag, but this latest to come to our attention may just hit the sweet spot between weight, top speed, and range. The folding e-scooter, dubbed ElectricMood, is currently in the prototype stage, and its designers hope to raise funds via crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to bring it to production.  Read More

It takes a certain kind of house and climate to make semi-outdoor living appeal on a regular basis (as my rusting garden furniture attests). Australia's Cut Paw Paw House manages it, and so does Spain's similar MMMMMS House: a passively-cooled home extended with a skeletal structure that serves to encourage its owners to spend more time outside.  Read More

In all, the students worked on the project for 10 weeks (Photo: Central College) Iowa-based Central College environmental studies majors Amy Andrews and Ethan Van Kooten decided to build a tiny house for their senior project.
