Edinburgh International Science Festival: Our Built Environment


With the human population ever growing and space becoming harder to find should we be looking to live smaller? The tiny house movement has taken off in the USA and is starting to gain attention here in the UK with designers and the public.

In the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design, Edinburgh Science Festival’s Tiny Homes Village will transform the city centre into a platform for discussion of what turns a simple roof over our heads into somewhere we are happy to call home.

From tiny homes to self-sustaining eco pods, traditional Mongolian yurts and emergency housing solutions we challenge Edinburgh’s city dwellers to consider how far – indeed how small - they would be prepared to go, asking ourselves if we could live in a house like that.
