Final Wooden House by Sou Fujimoto.  Japanese designers are really something.  Per capita they just might have more aesthetic sensibility and restraint than anyone else.  With this project Sou Fujimoto takes the idea of a simple wooden block and brings it to life on a large scale with nice results. Though perhaps more sculpture than house (i.e. lacking function in some practical senses) he has done a nice job of rethinking enclosed living space. An idea like this might fit nicely with a rethink of the traditional Finnish sauna. Logs from the island could be sourced locally, chosen according to our forest management plan, and milled in the rough using an Alaskan Sawmill, for example.
