Tiny Homes is a visual presentation of the work of some 150 DIY builders: tiny homes, studios, saunas, garden sheds, and greenhouses, each on the forefront of downsizing and self-sufficiency. These structures, all under 500 sq. ft, are built on land, water, wheels and in trees.
Lloyd Kahn is a pioneer of the green building movement, a celebrated photographer, and the editor-in-chief of Shelter Publications. He is the author of Builders of the Pacific Coast and the originator of the Whole Earth Catalog. At this talk, Lloyd Kahn will present a stunning presentation on his new book Tiny Homes, Simple Shelter: Scaling back in the 21st century.
Presented in partnership with Banyen Books & Sound as a part of Design Every Day.
