Child's birth has changed her perspective to see a different face of the community which she used to be familiar with. Only understanding the needs of the reality, following the context, the design can deep down to the life essence, return to the original temperature between people.

王采元 設計師 從懷孕後的生命歷程分享,作為她社會住宅想像的起點。孩子的出生改變了她的視角,看見過往熟悉社會的另一個面向。真實體察需求,貼緊脈絡的同理,設計才能深入到生活的底層,回歸人與人之間原有的溫度。

Tiny houses and sustainable communities

BY JIMMYZ HIRST
@ VOL 25 ON FEB 28, 2018

Jimmy Hirst has been traveling the world researching Tiny Housing, sustainable communities (Eco Villages) for the past five years and looking at progressive living ideals. He believes we now have the need, the technology (like with Blockchain), and the consciousness to facilitate a shift in the western living paradigm, to help bring the mainstream population into embracing more sustainable and connective communities. He believes it’s time to reinhabit the village, holistically regenerating human and natural values, to last for generations to come.
