ARCHT-304

This studio focuses on housing: through the analysis of history, type and precedents, through lectures and field trips, through study of housing's influence on urban form, and through focused design investigation. Disability codes, energy regulations, exiting requirements, and constructional systems become an integral part of the student work. Cultural and social factors that affect the design and use of housing are also included. A multi-family housing project is the final project of the semester.
