Bob isn’t human unfortunately; he is the creation from one of my favourite architects Andrew Maynard. Maynard characterizes BOB as “a hybrid home of the future, a mobile living tool for tomorrow’s generation of nomadic wanderers. Somewhere in-between a tent and a house, BOB explores the relationship between the basic human requirements of travel and shelter.”
The simple premise for BOB is that the engine, gearbox and drivetrain are located under the front seats, leaving the rest of the van for living; Critical components are efficiently contained in the front quarter. To create BOB, Maynard worked in Association with Soren Luckins.
