Shoebox living versus the homelessness crisis
Politics, they tell us, is the skilled use of blunt objects; and by such a measure, Environment Minister Alan Kelly is becoming more adept. His plans for the introduction of new, smaller minimum standards for apartment sizes have been roundly slated by architects before the ink has even dried on the blueprints.
The Green Party is also unhappy, claiming the proposals amount to a caving-in to developers.
Besides, the architects insist, they will do nothing to address costs or increase housing output.
