The Family Home in 322 square feet ? IKEA has a solution

Urbanists try to sell us on living in small spaces.  Here is a home for a family of four in 322 square feet designed by Ikea. 

I have a love-hate affair with IKEA.  I love their innovation and modern, accessible design.  I hate the disposable consumerism and cheap chipboard furniture with no soul.  Plan Bay Area aspires to transform the suburbs into small apartment living in high density complexes through a combination of government funding,  upzoning and a ban on new single family home development.  

Is this the American Dream you aspire to?  Probably not if you are among the 85% of Americans that prefer privacy, space and nature afforded in suburban, single family living.
