Cardboard Tube Playhouse, Virginia Melnyk, Toronto 2013

Virginia Melnyk designed a playful house made of cardboard tubes for a competition in Toronto that reimagined the Sukkah, the  pavilions constructed during the Jewish festival of Sukkot.  Sukkahs are by design temporary, so the durability of the tubes wasn’t an issue, but perhaps more resilient structures could be constructed in the same way (with reference to Shigeru Ban, naturally!).
