For the MICRO HOUSE / Issue # In the 6th architecture competition, candidates are invited to submit their designs for a micro house: an isolated modular structure that would house a hypothetical couple of young professionals. The only requirement is that the total constructed area of the structure does not exceed 25 m2; beyond that, participants are encouraged to be as creative as possible.
Participants are encouraged to rethink spatial organization and incorporate unique aesthetics, new technologies, and innovative materials that will make the microhouse a completely new form of architecture.
