Johnson&rsquo;s comments highlighted the pressures of retaining the social mix of central city areas in the face of increasing inequality of income and rising land and property prices. It was, and is, an issue that not only affects social housing at the lower end of the scale but also the intermediate market where young professionals and entrepreneurs&nbsp;&mdash; the drivers of the city&rsquo;s future economy &mdash; can no longer afford to live in the capital.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150033399/studio-visits-schmidt-hammer-lassen Studio Visits: Schmidt Hammer Lassen Ellen Hancock 2017-10-30T09:01:00-04:00 >2017-10-24T19:01:37-04:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/i7/i7hevf4ohaz5qsbb.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/i7/i7hevf4ohaz5qsbb.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/i7/i7hevf4ohaz5qsbb.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/i7/i7hevf4ohaz5qsbb.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><p><a href="https://archinect.com/firms/cover/851/schmidt-hammer-lassen-architects" target="_blank">Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects</a> was founded over 30 years ago in Aarhus, Denmark by Morten Schmidt, Bjarne Hammer and John F.

This growth now more than doubles the hourly earnings of the average American, pricing many families out of the market and out of the city. Similar trends can be found across major metropolitan areas in Europe and Asia, fueling acute housing crises such as the well documented situation in London, England.
