This workshop is connected to the Architecture Film Night on Thursday, October 26 from 5:30 - 7:30pm. at the Mill. Learn more >

Description: Taking care of the planet is everybody’s kuleana, or responsibility. After all, it’s where we all call 'home'. As our planet increases in population and struggles to deal with climate change, the Tiny Living philosophy is a growing movement in sustainability. In this workshop, students will work side by side with local architects to explore and investigate the design of a small dwelling through drawing and model-building. Inspired by Japanese Tatami mat layout, students will be challenged to assemble a kit of modular pieces into a small dwelling to be occupied by visiting artists at the DMAC campus.

Level: Beginner, Ages 12-16

Please note: Registration will close Sunday, October 22 at midnight.

Students should bring: 

  • Ruler or straight edge (if you have)
  • Drawing Board large enough for an 11x17” paper (if you have)
  • Healthy snack, lunch, water or beverage of choice
