Micro: Very small buildings, by Ruth Slavid

March 31, 2009

Cute, eccentric, futuristic, rustic, mobile, experimental, and some even liveable.

All projects included in this excellent collection are classified as ‘micro’. A brief introduction is followed by five thematic chapters: Public Realm, Community Spaces, On The Move, Compact Living and Extra Space. Case studies include a park bench that transforms into a shelter in Australia, an inflatable treetop structure for observing rainforests, sleeping tubes in an Austrian Park, a moveable church in Finland and a suspended office in France.
