The benefits of using your vehicle as a home: It’s affordable, you can live anywhere you want, change your surroundings as you please and there’s no property taxes.

Sound good? Then consider Truck-A-Tecture, a design concept that bills itself as “a mash-up of popular and elite cultures” and promises to “transcend the current definitions of pre-fab and mobile architecture.”

Four architecture firms out of California built four working Truck-A-Tecture structures that drove themselves to KANEKO in Omaha, Nebraska where they are currently on display:

The Truck-A-Tecture exhibit, which runs until August 23rd, is a dialogue on transportation, nomadism, the nature of “home” and sustainability. To find out more about the series head on over to designboom.
