Synopsis

This survey of award-winning housing, built in cities such as New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Cleveland, reflects a combination of marketing and public funding structures and a variety of housing types. An array of approaches to housing by students within studios taught by these architects over a three-year period will be shown. Various forms of housing and other commercial forms of development, including live/work hybrids, office and residential towers, as well as a retail residential mix building types are explored. The design of housing in the United States is often considered from strictly market imperatives, or a formal architectural perspective. The work within this volume seeks to bring together the most enlightened thinking from the realms of social practice, architecture and real estate development to develop a greater awareness of the interdependence of architecture and the marketplace in a ranger of sites and housing types.
