What is 
Small-Scale
Architecture? What is 
Small-Scale
Architecture?

Pavilions. Shelters. Backyard studios. Outdoor toilets. Playgrounds and play structures. Treehouses. Phone booths. Chapels. Meditation spaces. Cabins. Bus stops. Mountain huts. Installations. Pods for private sleeping in public spaces. Mobile offices in trailers. Food trucks. Enclosures for reading in libraries. Floating rooms set adrift in lakes. Stage sets. Pedestrian footbridges. Shading canopies. Viewing platforms. Information stations…

Even the smallest projects can contain big ideas. Sometimes these ideas, such as new explorations in materials and form, can have significant influences on the practice of architecture. Architects, startups, investors, entrepreneurs, and companies are inventing new means for designing small spaces that enrich lives. All of these ideas fall within the wide-ranging topic of small-scale architecture.

Do you have an idea or something to say about small-scale architecture?
