Giant Floating Egg Houses An Artist’s Studio [Pics]
The Exbury Egg is a self-sustaining floating structure that provides a place to stay and a lab for studying the life of a tidal creek.
The Exbury Egg is a temporary, self-sustaining workspace that floats on water, providing a place to stay and a lab for studying the life of a tidal creek. The result of a collaboration between PAD studio, the SPUD group and artist Stephen Turner, the Egg contains a bed, desk, a small stove, and a wet room.
Turner will work from the Egg for a year, in the estuary of the River Beaulieu in the UK. The Egg will be ‘tethered’ like a boat and will rise and fall with the tide. The structure includes a collecting and collating center with integral storage and display areas.
