Chameleon Cabin

WEEKENDEDITION It’s different every way you look at it. An ephemeral cabin project by Swedish architect Mattias Lind of the firm White Arkitekter is built to change the way you look at buildings.

The hut, dubbed the Chameleon Cabin, was commissioned by a Swedish printing firm and is built out of sturdy corrugated paper, according to Curbed. The 75-square-foot structure changes colors depending on your perspective because half of its folds are printed black, while the other side is left white – the inside is colored yellow.

And at a mere 95 individual pieces and 220 pounds no construction permit is necessary if you decide to build your own optical illusion. [Curbed]Christopher Cameron
