ARCH 517 - New Urban Housing


The class attempts to give students an introduction to the design issues associated with high-density urban housing. This area was a focus of experimentation for the first generation of modern architects. Today, pressures from urban sprawl and concerns for sustainable patterns of living have renewed the need to find ways of making modern urban neighborhoods. Issues of innovation and continuity need to be explored. This seminar will discuss the history of modern housing and explore a range of contemporary architectural projects, built and unbuilt.(Y)
