'I want to be in that space'

Fin-top House by Moxon Architects is a proposed solution to the way Tokyo's land prices and zoning are forcing people to commute long distances to work. Designed to be used singly or in stacks, it is suitable for locations such as unused car parks or gap sites. The pods contain two bedrooms, dining and living space, plus a creative play zone for children. The materials used for the structure and skin have been chosen to minimise the building's energy use.
