For twenty-four hours only (until 5:59PM EST February 15th), ArchDaily readers have been given the exclusive opportunity to watch the documentary, MICROTOPIA, in its entirety, for free.

The film is a provocative look at the global trends of micro-housing, downsizing, and living off-grid. As the film-makers put it: “In an age of increasing population and technological gains, today’s mobile society has resulted in a demand, or perhaps a dream, for portable dwellings and dwellings in new settings and situations. explores how architects, artists and ordinary problem-solvers are pushing the limits to find answers to their dreams of portability,flexibility – and of creating independence from “the grid.”[...] On the sidewalk, on rooftops, in industrial landscapes and in nature we will see and feel how these abodes meet the dreams set up by their creators.”

Miss your 24-hour window? MICROTOPIA is available to rent for $3.99 on Vimeo.

    Things get complicated when more than one person live in a small space and become complex with a family. It´s not as straightforward as they make it sound.

    These are people who are thinking and experimenting with concepts for more sane systems that work with the environment. They are at the nucleus and invite others to cluster around and expand, foster,and build from their ideas. You don’t have to entertain living in any of these..I see what may be possible. A treehouse might be a start.

    Marginal living for marginal people.
    Not a solution for humanity.
    Comedy, maybe.
