Here’s an unusual idea: using tiny houses to address the affordable housing crisis. Many of these homes are 200 square feet or less. Could they help house low-wage earners in Baltimore? Greg Cantori, CEO of Maryland Nonprofits, and Davin Hong, principle architect at the Living Design Lab, describe their vision. And Klaus Philipsen, urban planner and president of Archplan, Inc., shares his thoughts on the feasibility of this approach.
