MINIMAX House Workshop Competition
15-18 August, Joburg
Led by Sarah Calburn and Dustin Tusnovics of SPACE MATTERS Architecture and Urbanism, The MINI-MAX HOUSE is a Design Workshop and Competition that will introduce a range of Alternative Building Technologies to Architects and Students in a simultaneously technical and design environment. Representatives of ABT's as well as the ECOTECT package from Autodesk will be continually on hand as we design, interrogate, mix, control and evaluate each 50m2 house design.
- A supremely minimal and wonderfully maximal 50m2 house made of Alternative Building Materials.
- In both its making and its experience, the Mini-Max House is required to confound all expectations:
In its minimal incarnation, it is required to, demonstrably:
- manifest the smallest possible carbon footprint in material supply, construction technique and time, out performing SANS 10400:XA
In its maximal incarnation, it is required to, demonstrably:
- maximise creative and lateral thinking through all its design components
