Want to know how you can fit an innovative, high-concept piece of architecture into a back yard or a beach-house plot? Curious to find out how seemingly unpretentious lifeguard towers, tree houses and dog kennels have been reimagined by today’s best architects? Or perhaps you are wondering what could be done with a modest real-estate tract of your own?

Then come along to the conventionally sized Royal Institute of British Architects in London next Tuesday evening to learn all about the contemporary creation of tiny built things.

The acclaimed architectural writer and editor Rebecca Roke, author of our new book, Nanotecture: Tiny Built Things, will be in discussion with three experts in this field, including Wendy Perring, founder of the award-winning PAD Studio and creator of the Exbury Egg(top); Yael Reisner, who made the simple, inflatable Take My Hand pavilion back in 2014; and Studiomama’s Nina Tolstrup, who designed this beautiful beach house in 2012 (above).
