Architects in the UK, where the average one-bedroom home is 495 square feet, are fighting for larger mandated minimum home sizes. Do you agree with this effort?

I don't worship at the altar of market force economics, but I have seen well planned residential environments with thoughtful furniture design that provided adequate housing for two in 500 square feet. We have to think in terms of housing units + community space if we are to develop sustainable housing for residents of modest means within sustainable communities. I'd much rather see regulations addressing other aspects of occupant health and safety and community assets than see forced minimum unit sizes.
