Protohaus

Architecture has been defined as 
"the art or science of building."  Or specifically "the art or practice of designing and building structures and especially inhabitable ones."

People have different ideas as to what makes a structure "inhabitable".  What do you think about 125 square feet of living space?  Could you live in so small a space?

This stick built home was constructed in 2009.   During 2009-2010 there were a variety of workshops at Alfred University New York where both students and faculty were able to contribute to the project.  S.C. Holley Construction oversaw the construction.  It boasts solar and wind power.  Made of mostly reclaimed and reused materials, it can ride on the back of a trailer bed.
