TinyHackerHouse to launch at #SXSW #2018, 10 - 11 March outside Palmer Events Center, Austin, TX
SXSW #2018 attracts millions of people from around the world. A conference by day and festival by night. One of the most diverse events you can participate in. 9 - 18 March in Austin, Texas.
This year i'm constructing a physical steel frame structure which is part of a building system designed to empower creatives and youth in underserved communities with skills to solve problems in architecture and support themselves. In addition we will celebrate the marriage of 3 movements :
The Hacker movement (Open-Source software and Hardware),
The Maker movement (3d Modeling and Advanced Manufacturing)
The TinyHouse movement (Affordable Housing, anti-consumerism and the idea that less overheads = more freedom and travel)
Behind all these movements are communities of creative artisans and changemakers at the forefront of the 4th industrial revolution. Equipped with skills to address tomorrows challenges.
The steel frame structure below represents phase 1 of the DIY TinyHackerHouse project. At this event we will showcase a 3dmodel design of a tinyhouse and build this in less than 4 hours.
I'm working with Austin Resource Recovery to connect with small businesses and identify waste materials that can be upcycled to integrate into this building system and support Austin in reaching the cities zero waste goals.
I will be hosting a Createathon in the future inviting my Hacker/Maker community to evolve this project. Part of this advocacy campaign promotes innovative solutions in affordable housing and address homelessness.
The project will be located under the canopy outside the entrance of Palmer Events Center. 10 - 11 March 2018.
The dimensions are 16" x 8" x 13" (Length x Width x Height)
