Pig Truck by Studio Swine

Azusa Murakami and Alexander Groves of Studio Swine have designed a mobile food stall for cooking and selling pig heads.

Called Pig Truck, the stall has been built around an existing bicycle frame, with a bucket placed at the front where the pigs head is cooked under a gold corrugated roof.

Using an ancient method of cooking, heat expelled from hot rocks is trapped inside the bucket and the food, covered with banana leaves steams inside the makeshift oven.

The stall uses no electricity or plumbing, using instead heat radiated from the rocks and a water bottle attached to its frame.

A split log table can be pulled out of the rear of the stall to provide eating space.

The following information is from the designers:


Studio Swine have created Pig Truck, an urban food stall that serves pigs heads in a land oven; an ancient method of cooking used in many native cultures throughout the world.

Land oven is simply a pit in the ground used to trap heat and bake, smoke, or steam food.

It is commonly used for cooking large quantities of food where no equipment is available.

Extremely hot rocks are placed in a hole lined with banana leaves, a salted pig is placed inside and covered with more banana leaves to preserve the heat and flavour.

The stall is designed be self sustainable, made with very little resources and to function with very little energy;

It uses no electricity or plumbing, the heat for cooking radiates purely from the rocks and the water from a bottle which is attached to the stall.

The stall creates an urban island in itself, whilst attracting customers with the simple communal cuisine, they are bathed in gold light reflected from the gold corrugated roof.

The split log table can be pulled out of the truck to accommodate more eating space.

    I love it! Would totally eat there sometime in the middle of the night presumably.

    As a sculpture it's perhaps of interest the gold corrugated steel is a nice touch but I fail to see any point to this apart from proving it's a daft idea?

  • homer

    looks like homer simpson made

    wow! finally an elegant hygenic and functional solution to the age old problem of how to cook ones pig heads, glad to see these boys putting in some time and hard work for such a great project.
    "It uses no electricity or plumbing, the heat for cooking radiates purely from the rocks" wow surely we can solve the energy crisis using these rocks that spontaneously generate heat. This project works on SO many levels! bravo!

    surely the point of a land oven is that the ground insulates it. by putting it in a bucket you've reduced its efficiency. why does the bucket have notches in the top? they look annoying.

    i would like to see someone cooking and serving a pig head in this

  • mikael

    just had to say the table is not made of split logs, they're tangential cut lumber, logs split radialy. sorry, I know I'm annoying, but if you insist on plugging a "technical" therm in your presentation, you should use the right one.

  • tim tangential

    I too would like to see a pig head cooked, it seems antiseptic right now.
