5 Things Architecture Can Learn from the Tiny House Movement

As the global economy grows uncertain, homeowners are getting more creative in order to afford essential residential spaces. The tiny house movement has gained a foothold worldwide, encouraging the construction of homes as small as 150 square feet (14 square meters), with many smaller housing models cropping up on a daily basis. Home to residents of all ages, tiny houses have evolved far beyond the cramped quarters of Airstream trailers of decades past and, though they were once considered an architectural farce, tiny houses are becoming an increasingly popular solution to weather the economic storm and increasingly relevant to the field of architecture.

    Try not to rewrite architectural history. Just because people are not truly familiar with what architects actually do does not mean they have not already been doing it all along. Pretty much every architect has at one point or another in their careers and most certainly during their student days designed very small and clever living spaces. There are a great many documented examples of tiny living spaces designed by famous architects during the last three centuries. It is only the people who have little education about architecture and the history of buildings who will think this is all something new and different.
