Everybody's talking about small apartments these days, but what does that mean? The Atlantic Wire delves into the psychology behind the shift toward the micro. Asks one resident of a tiny apartment: "'Does the trend mean that this generation is less willing to live with others? Or has the need/desire for these solitary spaces been there all along, while the micro-apartment solution was not?'" And how does this all fit in to the larger conversation about affordable housing, given that most residents of small dwellings whose places make it into the media are inhabiting their small spaces by choice?
