hugon kowalski of polish firm H3AR architecture and design recently created 
'instant house' for an international student competition in milan. the theme was that 
of a temporary residential mini unit, linked to the presence of young people with high
levels of territorial mobility connected to particular metropolitan events.

the concept includes concrete cylinders, made from styrofoam concrete (which increases
the acoustics and insulation and is twelve times lighter than normal concrete). this concrete
contains TI02, which will reduce air pollution. in 2014 it will be possible to produce 
concrete from rice husks which reduce carbon dioxide emissions during the making process.
