From Harvard Innovation Lab, A Startup To Help Take Tiny Houses Mainstream Tiny houses occupy a curious position in our cultural consciousness. They're a cottage industry, but are also a full-fledged lifestyle movement with devotees and fans spanning the entire globe.

It's a dream many of us have cherished at one time or another - the primitive desire to escape to a simple, idealistic existence, living off the land - where Mother Nature, rather than Tesco, satisfies our stomachs. Daydreams and adventure novels aside, most of us would never contemplate doing what author Nick Weston, a latter-day Robinson Crusoe, actually did - building and living in a treehouse in the woods of southern England, foraging for food, in a six-month experiment to see if it was possible to live as a 21stcentury hunter-gatherer. 'I was at a stage where I knew what I wanted to do and where I wanted to be - and that wasn't living in a rented flat in London with no money,' he says.

Tiny Homes You Can Collect Inside the rain-battered tents of last week’s art fair, there were bears made from feathers, a painting made from shoes and shoelaces, and a stabbing incident involving an X-Acto knife that was not a performance piece. Among these and other, expected curiosities were two architectural prototypes: an aluminum and steel dining pavilion designed by with Patrik Schumacher, which sprouted like a kind of Martian flower over a molded timber table and chairs, and a 350-square-foot white box sheathed in laminated plywood designed by Gluckman Tang as an art pavilion. (It would certainly make an appropriate container to house one’s art fair purchases once home.) The structures and other “bespoke, architectural collectibles,” as their developer, Robbie Antonio, called the designs, were for sale through a new company called Revolution Precrafted Properties that aims to deliver limited editions of small houses and pavilions designed by big names within a few months of an order.
