SCAD’s School of Building Arts students were challenged to develop a residential prototype that could inhabit the upper levels of the SCAD-Atlanta parking deck. Working with other programs at the institution—including service design, industrial design and design for sustainability—the units will be constructed and students will be given the opportunity to apply to live in the structures for two weeks. These micro homes have all the basic amenities of a typical home, from showers to kitchens to beds, in the footprint of a parking space. Students granted a space will have to participate in SCAD‘s documentation, evaluation, and promotion of the SCADPad experience through social media.
