A competition in New York City pitted architects and designers against one another to envision and create livable apartments that are about the size of a hotel room, or 250 to 370 square feet. Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the city is facing a housing shortfall of 800,000 studio and one-bedroom apartments, and that the tiny units will be needed in any city with young people. The winning design will come to life as a 10-story apartment tower, built on city-owned land using modular construction.
