Modern American Housing (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 7-10 days


Modern American Housing: Tower, Reuse, Infill provides a unique look at some of the best practices and latest developments in the design and construction of contemporary housing, focusing exclusively on examples in the American city. The book is divided into three sections, analysing cutting-edge housing designs, each of which fall into three categories based on the project's context: housing towers, reuse of historical structures, and urban infill housing. Each section is curated by a leading practitioner of that type of work: Andrew Bernheimer (towers), Julie Eizenberg (reuse), and Stanley Saitowitz (infill). The projects are been documented with rich photography and drawings, and include a contextual maps which illustrate their urban settings. An essay by historian Jonathan Massey (Syracuse University) and a conversation led by Gregg Pasquarelli (SHoP Architects) with various urban planners, architects and policy makers place these case studies in an interpretive framework of speculation about the past and future of the American house.
