The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

InHabitation Report

Zimmerman, Kathleen

This report describes the work that I, Kathleen Zimmerman, performed as a GRA for Tia Gardener-Simone’s InHabitation Project. The goal of this project was to construct a tiny house as a model for affordable housing for artists. It would be a live/work space that could be transported if necessary but would reside on a property in North Minneapolis. My role was to help design the tiny house and produce drawings and renderings for the project. Our timeline was to finalize designs by mid-July and start construction by August. Unfortunately this assumed that we would be able to purchase a lot and construct the tiny house in that time period. While we had anticipated some issues with zoning and building codes, in the end they proved to be more difficult to overcome than expected. The tiny house has been constructed but it continues to exist in limbo as we wait for municipal attitudes to adjust.
