Micro-living often comes with concerns regarding loneliness, health, and wellbeing. Despite this, the movement towards smaller household sizes is growing.

Experiential Learning

The exhibit is further enriched with interviews, research, and experimental explorations into the practicality and aesthetic dimensions of living in small spaces. The specially commissioned film with William Bracewell of the Royal Ballet is a testament to the exhibit's immersive approach.

Interactive Elements

Contributors to the Conversation

Among the array of contributors, the exhibit showcases ideas from renowned architects and designers such as Proctor & Shaw, Intervention Architecture, and Satoko Shinohara, to name a few.

Global Perspectives

The exhibition includes the ingenious works of Takeshi Hosaka, the Kuma Lab, Gary Chang, and other illustrious figures in architecture, bringing a global perspective to the dialogue on small-space living.
