the ‘pop-up house’ by french design and architecture firm multipod studio challenges current passive construction techniques. wanting to develop a structure that offered an alternative to traditional building solutions, the project also sought to reduce the need for heating, which is a major factor in global energy consumption and one of the main household costs today. the environmentally friendly dwelling can be assembled using lightweight and recyclable materials and rapidly installed without any special tools. the first prototype has been built in the pine valleys of the south of france, displaying the inexpensive and highly insulated ‘pop-up house’.
