Small in Japan
I came across the cutest smallest house in the middle of Tokyo by Yasuhiro Yamashita, called Reflection of Mineral.. With 45 m2 it makes a perfect compact city dwelling, with its faceted facade it looks different from every angle you view it, and challenges the way we think of modern living . The little house even has an outside area to house a small cute car. It is not only Sushi and Sake that are hot these days, Japanese Architecture has been for a while and is still among the most creative and boundary breaking in the World. I hope that we can embrace the new Japanese way of city living also in Europe, I would not mind living in a house like that in Oslo. By the way, Tokyo is on my must go list.
