Modern architecture expert Philip Johnson created this trend in 1980, when designed a one-room work space and library on his property in New Canaan, Connecticut. Three decades later, the refereed “monk’s cell”, solitary, now-classic studio that features a fireplace, skylight and an expansive bookcase that houses 1400 volumes on architecture, has started to take place in the minds of contemporary architects today.

Thinking big, building small has since then become the mindset of several of today’s architects and designers, with the rise of minimalism and concern over abundance and exaggeration. The constant need for more housing and retail space, the growing number of the population, the shrinking budgets, everything has been pulling forward to temporary tiny structures and permanent designs.

For that reason, today we decided share with you 10 small architecture projects around the world that stand out for their outstanding aesthetics and materials to inspire you on your next design. Take a look!
