Much of the worlds’ population lives and works in small spaces. This studio explores behaviors and ways in which design responds to micro environments. Inquiry will experiment with issues of commodity, firmness and delight through the tenants of reduction and scale. In reducing one’s carbon footprint, how small is too small? Prototypes range from tents and pods to nomadic structures.
