Architects, startups, entrepreneurs, and product companies are inventing new means for designing small spaces that enrich lives. We asked individuals from any field or background to submit ideas, in text or imagery, to add to this discussion about the relationship between architecture and the human body.

We received hundreds of submissions from around the world. The works of the selected authors listed below have been chosen for print in ARCHHIVE's upcoming book, alongside award-winning Bee Breeders competition entries, and featured design and product companies including Sleepbox, ROOM, Matter Design, On, the Colorado Building Workshop, and many others.
