Roll-It Experimental Housing
“Students from University of Karlsruhe, Germany, Christian Zwick and Konstantin Jerabek have designed this unique experimental revolving house called Roll It, based on the concept of “mobile and space-efficient construction”. The design offers flexible housing in a minimum space. The cylindrical house features a very unique interior setting which changes its functions depending on the orientation. The workspace in one position becomes bedroom when rolled 180 degrees and the kitchen becomes bathroom. The center of the structure can be used both for sports activities as well as for lighting control.” [via]

好きな逸話があります 1650年代から時代は下り 最近の素晴らしいアイデアにまつわる お話です ティモシー プレステロという素晴らしい人物が デザイン ザット マターズという組織を運営しています 途上国での幼児死亡率といった悲惨で 猶予のない問題に取り組むため 設立された組織です こんなことで困っていました どこであっても 近代的な新生児用の保育器を使い 未熟児を暖めてやることで その環境の幼児死亡率を半減できます その技術はすでに存在します どの先進国でも一般的なものです 問題なのは それを4万ドルで購入して アフリカにある中規模の村に 送ったとしても 1年や2年はとても役に立ちますが その後は どこか調子が悪くなって壊れてしまい 壊れたまま放置されます 予備の部品の流通システムもなく 4万ドルの装置を修理するような 現地の技術者もいないからです お金をつぎ込んで 援助や最新機器を送っても無駄になる そんな問題に行き当たるのです

プレステロたちは良く考えて 途上国で十分に行き渡っているものは何か? という点に注目し ビデオも電子レンジも あまりないけれど 車を走らせるための メンテナンスはうまく行われていると気づきました どこでもトヨタのハイラックスが 道を走っていますから 車をメンテナンスする技術者ならいるようなので こう考えました 「車の部品だけで 新生児用の保育器を作れないだろうか?」 出来上がったものがこちら 改良型保育器です 西洋諸国の近代的な病院にあるような 普通の保育器と一見同じですが 中身はすべて車の部品です ファンを使い ヘッドライトを熱源にして ドアベルを警報装置にしています カーバッテリーで動作します トヨタ店舗から予備部品を入手できて ヘッドライトを修理できるなら この保育器を修理できます 素晴らしいアイデアですが 私が言いたいのは この話が アイデア創出の示唆にあふれていることです 4万ドルの最新保育器のような 先端技術の結晶を 飛躍的アイデアだと思いがちですが 身近に落ちている何らかの部品でも 組み立てられることが多いのです
