Recap: Catalytic Denver – Small Footprint Living

Presented by the Denver Architecture Foundation in partnership with Historic Denver and Su Teatro.

Program Description
In Denver, just a decade ago, the terms ADU (accessory dwelling unit), micro-apartment and tiny home were not in the common urban lexicon. Today, city dwellers cannot talk about the future of urban living without these terms. But small footprint living is not a new invention; rather, it is a revival of the way many Denverites lived in the city’s earlier days when a compact, walkable urban form was a reality.

This panel explored the issues related to small footprint living, the impacts on the existing urban fabric and integration with the historic context, and discussed the expansion of both ADUs and micro-apartments in the Denver area. The panel answered questions from the audience regarding design, technology, policy and development.
