How would you feel about carrying your home in your pocket or having clothes to live in?
For most of us, "house" means stability, structure, and permanence. In an age of increasing population and technological advances, today's mobile society has resulted in a demand — or perhaps a dream — for portable dwellings and dwellings in new settings and situations.
Microtopia explores how architects, artists and ordinary problem-solvers are pushing the limits to find answers to their dreams of portability, flexibility and creating independence from "the grid". Modern nomads, homeless people, people in stress, people in need of privacy or seclusion. Microtopia shares the personal reasons behind the dwellings, and shows how they actually work. On the sidewalk, on rooftops, in industrial landscapes and in nature the film reveals how these abodes meet the dreams set up by their creators. Microtopia deals with a contemporary urgent ideas that are addressed, and solved, in a very surprising way.
