““The Box” is a tiny house in the woods hand-built by architect Ralph Erskine. He would later go on to design influential buildings in Sweden, England and Canada. In 1941 though, he was a young unknown English architect who had traveled to Sweden to work with architects he admired.
With the start of the war, economic conditions took a turn for the worse and left work scarce. Having a wife and two baby girls to shelter, Erskine set about to build a temporary home for his family on land given to him by a farmer friend. The Erskine family would spend four years living in the two-room house.”
