Affordable Urbanization

As the population grows and housing becomes scarce, creative options arise

Implications - The population is increasing at a rapid rate. This creates a need for more housing, but also calls for an increase in diversified housing options to accommodate all financial situations, family sizes, and spatial contexts. This results in more creative housing solutions designed to be more affordable and size-conscious. Essentially, this large-scale redefinition of what it means to own property signifies greater overall change, and a faster pace of acceptance.
