Tiny home moves to Cambridge City Hall

Designed and built by School of Architecture students the Tiny Home prototype is now on display at Civic Square at Cambridge City Hall from now until mid-November. Researchers from the University of Waterloo are working in partnership with the City of Cambridge to explore the possibility of tiny homes to create housing solutions for people experiencing homelessness in the region.

The 2021-22 competition theme asked students in Canadian schools of architecture to design a pedestrian bridge that spans two sites “to establish a meaningful connection. The bridge, by its elegance and gesture, should draw attention and be the symbol of a link between an origin and destination.”
