I’ve been seeing a whole lot of bizarro green home concepts lately and they just keep on getting weirder and weirder (or more and more inventive/clever, depending how you look at it). In recent weeks, I’ve featured a French home designed to look like a lush green hill, a house in Montana that resembles an ark, and a modular living space from Germany that’s essentially a human hamster wheel.
As Inhabitat points out, it’s not quite clear what possessed Voglreiter to design and build a car-shaped — and no, it doesn’t actually move — abode aside from the fact that his clients wanted to update a "typical 70's style suburban home." Maybe he’s trying to really fill conservative neighbors with ire? Maybe the client really like cars? Maybe he's using sustainable architecture as a, ummm, vehicle to make a point about society's reliance on automobiles? After all, many of us truly do "live" in our cars. Who knows.
