By reducing living space to its smallest unit, the square metre, the “One Square Meter House” prototype promotes a critical view of land speculation. Beyond this, it subverts the notions of habitability, adaptability and evolutivity. A body-trap that takes contemporary narcissism to its most absurd, “One Square Meter House” makes public space the only possible terrain for social interaction.
