Making Room: New Models for Housing New Yorkers

Anyone living in a city for more than a few weeks knows that solving the perfect apartment setup is an ongoing quest rather than an attainable solution. The Museum of the City of New York ((MCNY) has collaborated with the Citizens Housing & Planning Council for their latest exhibit, Making Room: New Models for Housing New Yorkers. The exhibit offers innovative design solutions to better accomodate New York’s changing demographics-including the rise in single people, and features a furnished micro-studio apartment in just 325 square feet. The exhibition also presents winning designs from the Bloomberg administration’s recently launched pilot competition to test new housing models, as well as examples set by other cities in the United States and around the world, including Seattle, Providence, Montreal, San Diego, and Tokyo.
