Posted Jul. 7 2014 by Tarana Mayes
Savannah College of Art and Design's futuristic micro-house experiment, SCADpad, is on the minds of media giants lately. TIME Magazine covered SCADpad in its "Smart Home" feature and NBC flew TODAY Show correspondent Jenna Wolfe to Atlanta for her own personal tour. In case the summer finds you behind on either, catch up by reading and watching now.

Studio Logic: inside the workspaces of professional artists and designers

Posted May. 14 2014 by Taylor Kigar
Space. Invariably, it’s the object of focus for artists and designers, and often times the basis for their inspiration. This is definitely true for the spaces we’ll feature in our series Studio Logic, exploring the studios of professional artists and designers. For the first installment we travel to Brooklyn, where powerhouse duo Trish Andersen (B.F.A., fibers, 2005) and Maureen Walsh (B.F.A., fibers, 2004) set up the multi-disciplinary design studio Domestic Construction.

A taste of tiny living in SCADpad

Posted May. 7 2014 by Glennis Lofland
I volunteered to live in Savannah College of Art and Design's experimental micro-house SCADpad because I wanted to test whether a 135 square-foot dwelling is truly liveable. I figured cooking was going to be my biggest challenge when I moved into SCADpad Europe this week: even when you have full-sized equipment (i.e. stove, oven), cooking in a small space is difficult. Where do you prep? Chop? Plate? Clean up? My mother is a fantastic cook.

Making room in a micro-house

Posted Mar. 20 2014 by Tarana Mayes
Suffice it to say that counter and storage space will be scant in Savannah College of Art and Design’s SCADpad micro-house, measuring 8 feet wide by 16 feet long. So where will the inhabitants put all their, well, stuff? This is the challenge that industrial design students working on SCADpad received.

Designing furniture for a micro-house on a micro-timeline

Posted Mar. 12 2014 by Tarana Mayes
Though their names have yet to be announced, the students who will have the good fortune to live in the micro-housing prototypes being constructed at Savannah College of Art and Design weigh heavily on the minds of the designers and builders who are quickly making SCADpad a reality.

Parking garage as host for micro housing model

Posted Jan. 7 2014 by Tarana Mayes
There was a time during my freelance television production days when I would have gone anywhere for work. In fact, being able to uproot from Atlanta and moonlight in a new city for six to ten weeks of production sounded like the ultimate adventure. Where to live? No matter. I would apply to the job first and answer this question second, knowing there had to be some college friend or distant relative in said city who would welcome a carpetbagger.
