    Description:

    - This group of drawings are for a "truck transportable week-end house to be located on a beach in North Wales, UK" ('Architectural Design', 511). Accordion-shaped extendible boxes with cross bracing are designed to be pulled out by car from a fixed central core onto structural rail sections leveled on jacks. The fixed central core consists of living, dining, kitchen and bathroom facilities. Four extendible boxes house additional sleeping quarters along with a carport and a dock which is shown extended out into the water. Two sketches have apparently been redrawn from originals by Cedric Price in order to clarify ideas for publication in 'Architectural Design', (May 1970) (DR1995:0179:007 - DR1995:0179:008).
