Can tiny homes ease the housing crisis or are they a risk to health?

Can tiny homes ease the housing crisis or are they a risk to health? | Matters of Design | Scoop.it
I live just outside the perimeter of London's largest building site. Close to 2,000 new homes on 20 new streets are being built in the King's Cross redevelopment, and of the properties currently on sale, prices start at £810,000 for a 41.7m2 studio (I can't tell you the cost of a three-bed for fear you'll choke on your breakfast). Space is at a premium here as it is across the capital. I packed up my ambitions for more of it long ago, and have instead committed to squeezing more life out of every last cubic centimetre I can call my own.

Laying the Groundwork

Laying the Groundwork | Matters of Design | Scoop.it
Affordable housing is at the top of New Yorkers’ minds more than ever with Mayor de Blasio’s new ten-year plan to create or preserve 200,000 affordable units across the five boroughs. In the last decade, the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) oversaw the creation of 1 million square feet of retail space throughout NYC. With this new affordable housing plan, HPD will focus greater attention on mixed-use development initiatives, reaching unprecedented levels of retail space production. Seizing this opportunity, the Design Trust partnered with the HPD to create a set of guidelines that will address the design and use of these new ground-floor retail spaces.
