Architecture information for people who are not architects.

For those of you not properly acquainted with me, I have a bit of an obsession with architecture. This is my new outlet. Sharkitecture will be consist of a round-up of architectural information mostly in the form of pretty pictures. These posts will hopefully depict the way architecture as an application can warp, mutate, destroy, and evolve natural and existing environments to create a place entirely unique to the human body and experience.

The topic for this installment is [SMALL]:

The Universe House by Tatiana Bilbao

Manifesto House by James & Mau, for Infiniski

Open Library by Superpool

Poli House by Pezo von Ellrichshausen

Small places provide a unique opportunity. You can burrow inside of them, creating a space that fits like a glove. Small places can produce more interactive environments, the reduced size literally forcing you to bump into your neighbor. Small places can sometimes result in a sense of displacement by being just a little bit bigger than you think, “how did they fit that in there?” But more than that, small places are special because they always have the privilege of being apart of something bigger. Possibly even something better.
