An answer to rising rent prices!

Twenty-four year old Dai Haifei, a recent architecture school graduate, built this egg-shaped mobile home as a response to the rising cost of rent in Beijing. It's 6' high, is on 2 wheels, is made of bamboo splints and sacks of grass seed that grow continually to provide insulation. It even has a solar panel to power his lamp. He lived in this structure for 2 months on the street. How's that for taking care of yourself?! You can see more pictures here.
