The World's Smallest Apartment Gets a Tenant

Ever think about living in a cramped, windowless room with a wire roof? No, not like a battery cage chicken, more like, a 25-year old Chinese woman named Zhang Qi. Her insanely-tiny apartment is just 21 square-feet!

She's the first to move into what the developer is calling a "capsule apartment" -- and what we're calling a "claustrophobe discrimination" lawsuit waiting to happen...

In fact, Zhang is the remaining hold out. Built in April, architect Huang Rixin couldn't find any takers so he opened it up to migrant workers to test out (pictured). One by one they all left. Zhang, who works at an advertising agency, tried it out and decided to stay.

And yes, Zhang's apartment has a chicken wire-like ceiling for air circulation since there are no windows. The space-deficient tenant says she enjoys living in her capsule apartment in Beijing. Go figure!
