WorkshopsA: High-Rise Residential

20 October 2018
8:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Even as the pressures of urbanization have led government and industry alike to conclude “there is no way but up” to accommodate the next generation of housing needs, it is far from settled that the ideal typologies of high-rise residential buildings have been established. Disconnection from nature, neighbors and context, as well as inflexibility for growing and changing families, are among the unresolved issues, compounded by lack of affordability. This workshop examines potential solutions.
