Piano's design is easily the smallest dwelling of the three covered here, and this makes it as much a statement as anything. But Diogene is also a fully loaded package that, like an airplane, takes advantage of every square inch of space. This analogy extends to the aluminum exterior, whose windows and rivets look airplane-like. On the exterior we can see the photovoltaic panels and solar water tubes mounted to half of the gable roof. There is also a rainwater tank underneath the floor that, combined with a biological toilet, aims for the building to work off the grid.
