Tiny Spaces: Iceland
Season 1, Episode 5 • Documentary, 20-Feb-2023

Known as Turf Houses, these structures became the remarkable vernacular architecture of Iceland. Today, contemporary architects are turning to traditional turf-building methods for inspiration and choosing to use them in modern Tiny Spaces.
