Design Your Own Micro-Unit February 2015

High school students designed a small dwelling unit for themselves in this three-day design studio. Based on recent Micro-Unit designs proposed by former Mayor Bloomberg for New York City, students were challenged with designing a comfortable, functional living space in a small area. Students used the full scale installation of an apartment in the Centerís Prague Functionalism exhibition as inspiration for their own designs and produced plan, elevation and section drawings in addition to a small scale model.
