About this project

The Tiny House will become a showcase house for sustainability and life perspectives, not least as a place to live and call home for low-income people in various climatic zones around the world. The project has a lot of potential and would like to attract supporters and sponsors from all sectors of society. The project work within the framework of TheoPrax, which takes place at the Hebel-Gymnasium Pforzheim, is a model that can - and, if we are optimistic, will - literally set a precedent at many other schools and teaching institutions. 

To this end, a completely sustainable, and transportable Tinyhaus made of natural materials and functional groups is being designed, tested and modeled in a multi-year student project at the Hebel Gymnasium Pforzheim and secured and built as a model house at various locations in Germany, Peru and Uganda.  The expertise gained in the process can be transferred not only to our partner countries Peru and Albania, but prototypically to the whole world. 

In order to prove the sustainability of the Tiny House variants in Europe as well as in Africa and South America, holistic assessments based on technical, social and ecological criteria are planned. The Tiny Houses are also to be further developed into transportable and interconnected modular houses to form new living systems. The necessary tasks associated with this will be tendered and awarded by CfD.
