This truly is the greatest thing since Michael Webb of Archigram's Suitaloon, (shown below the fold)- Industrial and fashion designer Justin Gargasz has developed a jacket that unfolds into a tent. Talk about carrying your house on your back!justin gargasz vessel image

Justin calls it "Vessel" and writes:

Individuals feel the need to escape interactions in their environment everyday. Whether it be interactions with excessive technology or other people, this psychological and physical need to get away is where I began my investigation.

If it is too hot, it folds up further into a sling pack.

A physical as well as psychological escape is achieved when the user has the option to efficiently get away from inside of building and come back when ever they choose. I focused on expandable clothing for concept exploration.
