Explore a New York exhibition of small-space design proposals that rethink current ideas about housing

After Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced the winner of New York City’s adAPT NYC competition at the Museum of the City of New York in late January, 2013, he toured the Making Room exhibition that opened the following day. The exhibition, organized by the museum with the Citizens Housing & Planning Council (CHPC), is subtitled New Models for Housing New Yorkers, and it explores this theme through design schemes that respond to CHPC research on the city’s shifting demographics as well as through finalists’ entries in the adAPT NYC competition, some precedents outside the city and an entire 325-square-foot apartment. This last piece received the most attention and gave the mayor some great photo ops, but as we’ll see, it is just part of the story.
