The story begins with a letter to Santa in 1972. A boy in Philadelphia wanted a houseboat. He did not get one. But a fascination with small environments had begun. These spaces, where the rituals of daily life feel more directly connected to the outside world, had captured his imagination.
Fast forward to 1999, the boy, now an architect and designer, moves to Houston to work at NASA on the International Space Station. He works on the “habitation module” (NASA speak for the place where astronauts eat, sleep, bathe, relax, i.e. their home). He is a “space” architect - mission accomplished. But he wants to design things that will actually get built…in his lifetime. He returns to earth, not sure what will follow.
Enter stage left, the Cricket trailer. Well, it was not quite that simple. In the interim, the boy (now husband and father) wanted to go on adventures with his family. He had camped extensively growing up and before having children. However, the kindergarten campout demonstrated that camping with small children in a tent was not what he (or rather, his wife) had hoped. So, combining his NASA experience with his love of the earth, he worked to create an innovative lightweight, compact, and flexible small environment in which to travel and explore the world we live in.
The result is the Cricket.
