Description/Abstract

"Neighborhoods with block after block of monolithic homes, which can be seen as far as the eye can see, are constructed by large conglomerate companies whose goal is to create the largest number of homes in the smallest area in order to achieve the largest amount of profit... The question becomes, what can we learn from this intensive use of space and how can it inform a design project that attempts to intensify use of space in the existing footprint of these communities in an intensification of uses that is informed by the informal relationships that already exist."
