“Modern American Housing” brings together the most enlightened thinkers from the worlds of architecture, social practice, and real estate development to present the latest developments in the design and construction of new housing stock in re-urbanizing cities throughout the United States. New housing is grouped into three sections—housing towers, reused historical structures, and urban infill—and documented with photographs, pre-construction renderings, floor plans, and maps indicating location in urban settings. An accompanying essay and a discussion with urban planners, architects, and policymakers round out this fresh look at the past and future of the American house.

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.
