How small will you go?
For Christopher Smith and Merete Mueller, it’s 124-square-feet.
“Tiny: A Story About Living Small” is the documentary Smith and Mueller made that charts their experiment with building — and downsizing to fit into — a 124-square-foot “tiny house” on five acres of land in Colorado.
With no prior construction experience and new to the now-established tiny house movement, Smith and Mueller track their experience as well as that of others across the country who have downsized their footprint by living small.
“Tiny’ will screen Wednesday and Thursday as part of the Contemporary’s Rooftop Architecture Film Series.
Huston-Tillotson environmental science professor Jeff Wilson– aka the self-proclaimed “Professor Dumpster — will share his experience living a year in a 33-square-foot dumpster as part of his Dumpster Project.
The rooftop opens at 6:30; screening begins at 7:30. Admission is $10. The Contemporary’s Jones Center is at 700 Congress Ave. http://www.thecontemporaryaustin.org/event/rooftop-architecture-film-series-tiny/
