Concrete Shell Structure Eggshell – a concrete pod for all occasions

The egg – nature’s most perfect form – is the stimulus behind this modern refuge designed for public and private spaces. Japan’s Kazuya Morita Architecture Studio designed the as a modern haven in which to momentarily escape the stresses of the world. “In the dome, because of its minimal scale, it makes us more sensitive and relaxed, like when we are in our traditional tea-house Cha-sitsu.” Exhibited at Concrete Art Museum 2005 in Nagoya, Japan, this contemporary cocoon is constructed of reinforced concrete, with a height of 1700mm and the shell just 15mm thick. According to the architects, “A minor axis of a hen’s egg is about 40mm and thickness is 400 microns, so it means this concrete shell is just like an expansion of a hen’s eggshell.” And although this modern structure is “hen’s-egg thin,” Concrete pod has the enough strength to support a grown man sitting on top. Speckled with holes, the shell offers a sheltered environment while maintain a connection with the exterior environment.
