From the architectThis installation is an abstract simulation of the smallest nano unit currently available on the market which is around 160 sq ft and incorporates a living room, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen.

Constructed of a uniform 2”by2” three dimensional grid, the installation is a relentlessly calibrated representation of the smallest nano unit deprived of any décor which draws the audience attention to the actual liveable space in such a compact living environment subtracting the room occupied by all fixtures or daily objects.

It intends to expand the discussion on the future of high density living in developed cities on multiple layers from efficiency VS redundancy to necessity VS hospitability.
