Something which might look equally at home in Walker’s World, this cabin called “The Truffle” is the work of Anton Garcia-Abril and Ensamble Studio. The structure was created by digging a hole in the ground, filling it in with straw bales to create the negative space within the cabin and then filling the hole with concrete. The ends of the block were then cut off to reveal the openings. After this it was over to Paulina, a young calf, who slowly ate the straw bales over the next year and used the cabin as shelter. The cabin was then fitted with mod cons, a door and a window.
