Smart Small Living

Maarten Hoorn en Rob Kotte, Smart Small Living, Platform31, 2016.

Smart small living is een woonvorm die uitgaat van kleiner en slimmer wonen, bijvoorbeeld door het gemeenschappelijke gebruik van voorzieningen. Smart small living voorziet in de behoefte van diverse groepen, is geschikt voor de transformatie van leegstaande gebouwen en sluit aan op trends als flexibel bouwen en blurring. Desondanks lijkt de regelgeving hier nog niet voldoende rekening mee te houden.

Urs Peter Flückiger, How Much House?
Thoreau, Le Corbusier and the Sustainable Cabin
, Birkhauser, 2016.

The space we live in, reduced to a minimum, has been fascinating us for generations – the writer Thoreau lived in a self-built hut in the forest from 1845-1847. In 1952, Le Corbusier built a hut at the Côte d’Azur for himself and his wife. Inspired by this, Urs Peter Flückiger, together with his students, built an ecologically and economically sustainable cabin in the Texan prairie. All three projects share the idea of minimal space and its relationship with the surrounding nature. In text, drawings, and photographs, this book analyses the three projects and shows parallels and similarities. Inspired by Tolstoy’s story How Much Land Does A Man Need?, the author asks: “How much house does a man need?”, thereby providing a pointed contribution to the current discussion on the requirement for housing.
