Artist builds 125 square foot "METAPOD"

Artist Jerome Levin describes his METAPOD as "A model for sustainable and affordable housing for environmentally friendly dwellers." Inhabitat writes that the 125 square foot micro-house has "a study area, an entertainment space, surround sound, in-wall speakers, wiring, surveillance and intercom, iPod connectivity, and handcrafted collapsible oak loft bed"

Inhabitat also notes that it "can also be adapted for use as a sustainable, affordable, and off-grid housing alternative." That might be a bit of a stretch given that it doesn't have a kitchen or a bathroom, and the materials list is dead standard, but it's nice small house eye candy and a lovely garden office/ getaway.
