Pod Skyscraper

The Tetris-inspired "Pod Skyscraper" is not your typical building, as residents can order a ready-to-use modular home created by 3D printers located on the top floor. Once ordered, a crane directly lowers it into place. To ensure that the homes remain organized, an automated system calculates the exact position for each pod, while problem pods are dismantled immediately. Buyers can also choose to combine several pods into one, creating a penthouse suite of sorts. Businesses can also purchase the pods to use as small offices and / or commercial spaces.

Japanese artist "Gaku" is a master of creating miniature sculptures, but with food. He started posting his masterpieces on Instagram approximately 8-months ago, and already has 15,900 followers. These sculptures fall under the Japanese art of "mukimono," which translates to "stripped product".
