University of Canberra student Will Woodbridge has been staying on this tipi-endowed raft on Australia’s Lake Ginninderra for the last eight weeks.
Part performance art, part alternative living solution, Will’s tiny floating home has withstood storms and earned an endorsement from local Aboriginal leaders who say he is welcome to stay on the lake as long as he likes, despite local government’s insistence that his household is against the law.
Woodbridge moved to the lake from his campus accommodations to protest high rent and a low supply of affordable housing in Canberra. This is a pretty ingenious, self-contained solution to what is becoming a growing problem around the world. Will didn’t like his housing options, so he made his own. GO, WILL!
