Architects, designers, and innovators are continuously challenged by the growing demands of contemporary societies that new forms of living started to emerge in an effort to improve the quality of life.

Microtopia, directed by Jesper Wachtmeister, gives a deeper look into the concept of downsizing; living in a smaller, portable, and compact dwellings.

The reasons behind this movement and its impact on the environment, economy, and way of living are investigated and explored in this documentary and will be followed up by an open discussion to reflect on this trend and the possibility of its embracement locally and regionally.
