NOT seen from my cab ....but maybe one day.

This was not seen in New York but from an article I read...I found it cool , put one in your backyard, hell put one in your front yard too. Easy maintenance very strong , although after a few drinks good luck finding your house.



While styrofoam may be most commonly associated with disposable coffee cups, meat trays and packaging, prefab home manufacturer Japan Dome House Co. uses it to construct easy-to-assemble modular kit homes.

The Dome House is an igloo-shaped structure built from snap-together wall sections made of 100% expanded polystyrene foam. Unlike wood and metal structures, the styrofoam Dome House does not rust, rot or attract termites. It is also highly resistant to earthquakes and typhoons. In addition, the walls, which are treated with a flame retardant, emit no toxic fumes in a fire.

I wouldn't mind putting these in abandoned lots around the 5 boroughs and giving people a better alternative to the shelter system which just flat out doesn't work. It may not be the right solution to our homeless problem , but what do I know....I'm just The King Of New York Hacks.

  2. Looks like an alien planet, where those little aliens with long fingers live. Some of them are really nice on the inside though!

  3. definately great thought for our society, we can call them piggy homes. both eco and people friendly
    also love the 60 increadible aerial photos. Great way to define and compare mother nature vs man-made structures. we're living in the fast moving enviornment, sometimes beauty is just under our nose, all we have to do is to open our eyes.
