Shigeru Ban’s Tamedia in Zurich.
Although Shigeru Ban did not choose paper for this one, sustainability was definitely not an afterthought. The timber frame construction does not need any steel reinforcements and supports the structure beautifully.

Diogene by Renzo Piano Building Workshop. 2011-2013.
It’s a modern interpretation of a minimalist, self-contained house. It leaves a very small footprint with a size of only 2,5m x 3m x 2,3m and a weight of 1,2t. It’s meant to be transported around wherever one wants to retreat.
On the roof there’s a small boiler for rainwater and on the other side there are solar panels to function autonomously.
There’s a living space, a small kitchen and also a toilet and shower area.
It’s named after the Greek philosopher Diogenes of Sinope, who slept in a ceramic jar in a marketplace, as he criticized a luxurious lifestyle. (sources: rpbw/vitra) at Vitra
