Cubby House

Cardboard Cubby House

The cubby house is made up of seven overlapping and interlocking tubes that bring the sky into the interior of the room. At the trade show, the floor within the space was painted bright yellow, later when it moved to the backyard, the floor was grass.

Following the trade show it was dismantled into seven tubes, put on the back of a truck and delivered to Imogen’s back yard where it remained until heavy rain turned it back into pulp and it was recycled.
