NEW THEME: small HOUSES

While the attention and pressure for the upcoming conference continues, we believe it is time for a new theme for the blog: small HOUSES.

With the primitive hut we find this small HOUSE as the archetype that all architecture embodies. Throughout history architects kept on exploring the boundaries and possibilities of the human condition that the small HOUSE provided. How much space do we need to live? What is important in a house? How far can we go until living conditions become impossible?

In Mark Z. Danielewski’s novel ‘House of Leaves’, we find that the opposite of the small HOUSE; a infinite space, deprives us of any form of attachment to the house. In order for the human conditions to thrive in a place, so that we can ‘live’, we need a scale of human proportions.

With this new theme, we want to explore, write, think, dream, of the small HOUSES that dwell in our minds and hearts. Surprise us with your stories or experiments and contribute to the blog.
