US studio Gray Organschi Architecture teams up with the Center for Ecosystems in Architecture at Yale University for the design of this eco-friendly off-grid tiny home. The project is commissioned by the UN Environment and Habitat programs and is intended to find viable solutions for the housing crisis, as well as climate change.

As a result, Gray Organschi Architecture and Yale researchers produce a sustainable off-grid tiny home prototype that boasts a "micro-farming wall" which is meant to filter "airborne VOCs, particulates, and pathogens." The roof, on the other hand, boasts photovoltaic panels, while the facade has an "Integrated Concentrated Solar Facade System" — developed in partnership with HeliOptix. Both technologies generate electricity for the structure. At 230 square feet, the house is compact, efficient and sustainable with a capacity of up to four people.
