Welcome. Currently we are many (micro) things:
Everything here is commerce-free, tours are gratis. The mission? To explore how to live well, sustainably. To bring together architects + designers + planners + developers + contractors + doers who design/build/live micro. To spread the micro message. Founded by Brian Levy in Washington DC
Why? In the US we lived 3x as small 60 years ago and weren’t any unhappier. Today we’re depleted financially, mentally and physically paying for and maintaining big homes. We have an affordable housing crisis. Our oversized U.S. housing is an environmental disaster, contributing 20% to U.S. CO2 emissions. There is joy to be found in embracing limits. And small is just cooler– it’s an iPhone world, time for us to stop living in a Blackberry.
