“When I was 14 years old, I wrote myself a letter, which I still have,” says Jeri Wakefield. “It reads, ‘No matter what happens in my life, I pledge to be the best grandmother I can be, so when I have grandkids they will have happy memories of their grandmother and their childhood.’”

Cuando una pareja de arquitectos tiene hijos pequeños, siempre llega el día en que éstos preguntan: -    Papá, mamá,... ¿Vosotros sois arquitectos, verdad? -    Sí... -    ¿Y hacéis casas a la gente? -    Si, claro... Y entonces viene la pregunta trampa: -¿Y por qué no nos hacéis una casita a nosotros?

Concrete technology takes another small and surprising leap, even by exacting Japanese standards, in this delicately perforated pod-for-all-occasions designed by Kazuya Morita. The secret of this remarkable little structure lies in its material and construction. The concrete is fibre-reinforced, a combination of white cement, lightweight aggregate and glass fibre. This mixture was meticulously hand trowelled onto a carved styrofoam mould by skilled plasterers (the traditional Japanese plasterer's art is known as sakan). The perforations were created by attaching styrofoam rings to the dome-shaped master mould. When the concrete hardened, the mould was dismantled and removed.
