Housing Redux: Alternatives for NYC's Housing Projects


Add your own review!

Overview

The book focuses on ways to reinvent public housing in New York City through a series of design projects from Yale School of Architecture that integrate form and provide social programs for the residents. The concepts focused on restitching the project into the city street grid and sought ways to add new built fabric that would allow the Modernist towers- in-the park project to connect with public streets. Some found ways to keep the superblock with interventions to support the community at different scales and family structures. Urban farms and community facilities as well as recreation spaces were included in order to have a range of interventions for care, health, and equity that could reorient public housing.

Reviews

"""A recent studio at Yale School of Architecture had students proposing affordable housing solutions for NYCHA's Washington Houses in East Harlem; the public housing project consists of more than a dozen towers on three superblocks that are the equivalent of seven city blocks, with open space comprising more than 85% of the site. The students developed master plans and then designed schemes ranging from reimagined brownstones to terraced housing and other ways of weaving more units between the existing buildings. It's refreshing to see architecture students tackling affordable housing in creative ways."" --A Weekly Dose of Architecture"
