A small group of students at Pasadena’s ArtCenter College of Design took on an ambition project, with “tiny” results.

They responded to a challenge from the city of Los Angeles to develop structures that could be used in Mayor Eric Garcetti’s emergency housing plan, “A Bridge Home.” In the process, they got a first-hand look at the challenges of solving what has become an increasing visible “crisis.”

The fruits of their labor were three tiny homes, “microdwellings” unveiled on Tuesday night at The Main Museum in downtown Los Angeles.
