Minima Moralia, a module halfway between the Tiny House and the Greenhouse.

The City of London is one of the capitals of creativity, craftsmanship and the arts… But can it still be so in 10 years with significant increases in rents and tuition fees? Rising inflation, a European exodus, a health crisis or even a war in Ukraine means that this vibrant city is slowly being reserved for the elite it used to be so heterogeneous.
