Microdwellings, in various forms, have been a part of numerous European and South American cultures for years. Within the past decade, Americans are becoming familiar and embracing the movement to reduce their living space and explore alternative dwellings in which to inhabit. The recent recession has spurred both necessity and desire to explore this way of living throughout the country from dense cities like Manhattan to the rambling fields of the Midwest and green hills of the South.
In Phoenix, sustainable living and microdwelling pioneer, Patrick McCue, plans an annual exhibit at Shemer Art Center and Museum featuring design features of modular structures, sustainable living tips and workshops.
According to Mr. McCue, “The goal of the movement of Microdwelling is to infuse the community with ideas about availability of building materials and resources, affordability, and to demonstrate hands-on construction techniques. It is the desire to of the organizers of this series of events that Microdwelling will be a springboard for a groundswell of activity that takes sustainable living to a new, more widespread level within the community.”
