How Small is Too Small?

School of Architecture Lecturer Katrina Stoll, along with Takako Tajima and  Daina Swagerty, present an investigation into the potential for so-called micro-unit housing in Los Angeles. Szabo and Tajima are constructing a full-sized 300-square-foot dwelling in the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design’s gallery space, allowing visitors the opportunity to understand what it would feel like living in a micro-unit. The installation will feature a double bed, kitchen, living area, and storage, replicating the bare essentials of a typical micro-unit. The two designers seek to engage the public on what the proliferation of micro-units would do to the vitality of surrounding neighborhoods, as well as to notions of contemporary domesticity.
