Several months ago, there was a flurry of interest in micro-housing in New York. The Museum of the City of New York opened an exhibit that displayed the winners of a city-sponsored competition to design very, very small apartments – smaller than are now considered legal.  There was a lot of press coverage and quite a bit of conversation. At the time, CoDesign/Fast Company ran a short piece about housing in the world’s most crowded cities: Hong Kong, India, other parts of Asia. Here are three of the photos, which have come to my mind often as I consider our general affluence, or sometimes when I see an article about a new, 30,000 square-foot private home being built. I don’t have the credits. But they are fascinating, and of course one wonders how they were taken.
