Design & Housing Typologies

Making Room Design Showcase: Presentations

SHARE

In 2011, CHPC partnered with the Architectural League of New York to commission developer/architect teams to take on a unique challenge: to design an array of accommodating, desirable, safe units for singles, shared households, and extended families, without needing to comply with certain regulatory restrictions, including minimum unit size, density restrictions, and occupancy standards. The results were presented at a follow-up symposium at the Japan Society of New York.

Peruse the presentations of the teams and learn more about the event.
