East Egg

An image search for the “Beijing Egg” opera house inadvertently turned up this gem: Constructed on the streets of Beijing by freshly graduated but still rent-poor architect Dai Haifei (戴海飞), a tiny living pod awaits its removal by the authorities.

Apparently his workplace is right across the street, so there’s no commute – and he leaves his notebook computer at the office. Probably no shower there though – my money’s on a gym membership.

In-depth info, interview and construction drawings over at Chinahush. Construction photos at Dai Haifei’s flickr account.

Here’s the original Beijing ‘Bird’s Egg’ – actually the National Centre for the Performing Arts, an opera building by Paul Andreu (2001).
