New York-based ar­chi­tec­ture prac­tice, DFA, has pro­posed a por­ta­ble 3D printed sleep­ing pod for a lo­ca­tion in South Cal­i­for­nia, which caters to a com­mu­nity of wealthy tech­nol­o­gists. The Galini sleep­ing pod of­fers guests self-sus­tain­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion with zero im­pact on the 609-acre prop­erty known as Walden Mon­terey. DFA cre­ated the 300-square-foot sus­pended pod so that it can be eas­ily shipped to re­mote lo­ca­tions and placed in the land­scape with very lit­tle im­pact. The 13 square feet pod of­fers a space to sleep, and shower. The water is re­cy­cled through an or­ganic fil­tra­tion and elec­tric­ity is pro­duced from a com­bi­na­tion of wind and so­lar en­ergy. The Galini sleep­ing pod of­fers a tem­po­rary place to stay whilst per­ma­nent pur­chase is con­sid­ered.
