La Plage du Pacifique by Kristin Green
Green was very taken by the organic necking and spooning of the curves of the shoreline in plan.

Seeks to make the body aware of its most ordinary gestures.

“In 2010 I wanted to build a place of my own. I found this beautiful slot and I set out to design a compact get-away for myself. The idea was to stay under 9 square meters which allowed me to build without a permit. I also wanted to maximize this space, use local/recycled materials and build it myself.
The angle and size of the window gives the interior a lot of natural light, you can even admire the stars during the night. I wanted to welcome in the beautiful surrounding. On the first floor I have a lounge area with a micro-kitchen. The 2nd story loft is for sleeping and storage. All the materials are local or recycled and carried to the spot by hand to keep the nature untouched. When I was done with it I named it Nido (italian for ‘birds nest’).”

Twelve houses form a soundproof embankment along a road, allowing ambient noise to be reduced to acceptable limits.

"…Several massive pieces of ice that broke off from Iceland’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull, in a big room cooled down below 0°.
The oldest ice in the glacier is estimated to have originated some 800 years ago. Of course, the power needed to do this comes from solar panels that were installed especially on the roof of the MoMA PS1.”
