A developer will break ground before the end of the year on New York City’s first building full ofmicro-apartments, an attempt to adapt NYC’s housing stock to its growing number of small households. While those micro-apartments don’t yet exist, the Museum of the City of New York is already considering all things micro-housing with “Making Room,” an exhibition devoted to new housing models for the city. The exhibit’s centerpiece is a325-square-footapartment designed by Pierluigi Colombo, and for thenext 24 hours, starting right now, the Curbed editors will beliveblogging from that micro-apartment. We’ll be chatting with museum visitors, talking to experts about small-space living, and dissecting what it’s really like to live in an apartment of this size (which is actually larger than some of the planned units in the city’s development).
Check out three separate articles in Curbed.
