  Jennifer Siegal of the Office of Mobile Design dreamed up a mobile dwelling that rests on top of a small truck. By pressing a button, the tent-like structure raises and inflates. A ladder mades the elevated space easily accessible. (Tour Siegal's Venice, California house, which features a truck trailer converted into a living space, here!)

  Mark Mack Architects created a transformable dwelling with a variety of indoor-outdoor options. A tent-frame shell provides shade for an open-air seating area. Above, an elevated sleeping loft is accessible by a small set of stairs.  Courtesy of: Tom Kessler Photography

  Jones, Partners: Architecture envisioned an open-air structure that resembles an "inside-out RV." A variety of prefab modules host essential activities, like showering and cooking, immediately outside the structure. The unit folds into one rectangular block, so it can be easily transported by trailer.

  Min | Day dreamed up this inflatable dwelling. A compact trailer (pictured in the back left) houses the structure when not in use. When inflated, the barriers-free interior space is meant to encourage creative interpretations and interactions.  Courtesy of: Tom Kessler Photography
