"MicroDwelling 2015"

The tiny house movement returns to the Valley this month with “MicroDwelling 2015: Alternative Spaces for Simple Living.” The showcase features about a dozen projects, including four built by ASU students in design and sustainability programs. Returning architects Dan Dwyer and event creator Patrick McCue will also show their small spaces. Other highlights include a Geeza-inspired pyramid and colorful, lens-heavy room. All are less than 600 square feet, making this a fun event for minimalists and curious lookers alike.

The big show of little spaces is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, February 27, behind Shemer Art Center, 5005 East Camelback Road, and continues through Sunday, March 1. Weekend hours run until 6 p.m. Tickets are $5 at the door. Visit for details.

Fri., Feb. 27, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.; Feb. 28-March 1, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., 2015
