I’ll be speaking tonight at 18:30 (CET) at the Bauhaus Campus here in Berlin about tiny houses and affordable housing. If you can’t make it, you can still follow the live broadcast/watch the video later here.
Here’s the summary:
Urban residents have long looked to space reductions as a way to save on housing costs in tense real estate markets. The innovations that they came up with have inspired the tiny house movement and the reaction against constantly increasing per capita floor space levels. In this talk, Dr. Mary Dellenbaugh-Losse will examine not only the reduction of floor space and clever spatial multi-uses but also serialization and modularization as ways to keep housing costs down and create new affordable housing, in particular in new construction. She will also discuss the possibilities that tiny house research presents for different household types, in particular families with children and multi-generational households.
