This tiny sod-roofed house sits among the sand dunes in northern Denmark. It has one bedroom in 430 sq ft. | www.facebook.com/SmallHouseBliss
ORIENTATION The short edge of seven rectangular sites face onto a cul-de-sac, with the road entry from the south. Ideal house siting is shown for each of the rectangular sites so that living areas are on the north side of each house, which are angled so that the north face of the house is not more than 30 degrees away from north. Houses on eastern and western sites are wide and square to the site. The house on the northern site is narrow and deep and oriented square to the site.

Winners of the Baltic Way Memorial architecture competition have been announced. The competition sought out ideas for a memorial of the 1989 movement that united two million people in a 600km human chain. It was a pivotal point in European history that showed the power of nonviolent protest. The three winning teams from the US, Netherlands and Switzerland each captured both the seriousness of the event and the positive message for the future.
