One Square Meter HouseAs the world becomes more crowded and housing prices go back up, you have to wonder: how much space do we really need? Architect Van Bo Le-Mentzel has created a lovely little riff on that very idea by building the world’s smallest house.

Just one meter square, it’s a thought-provoking piece of design. Visually enticing, iconic and, yeah, pretty cramped. But having spent years himself as a refugee gives Le-Mentzel a different perspective on shelter. Take a look, leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you.
