A growing critique of many larger-scaled new urban developments concerns the quality of the architecture and construction, particularly of multifamily housing. This session explores multifamily building types that can complement or even enhance the public realm of walkable urban places, at every scale, while also satisfying developers' objectives for investment-grade income property or marketable ownership units. How can an understanding of urban residential building types inform more competent urban placemaking? Can better housing prototypes, or assemblages of types, be developed? Are there urban prototypes that can retain the affordability and replicability of conventional product types? How can local planning/zoning agencies be empowered to promote higher design quality in the construction of multi-family building types? Presenters will propose urban structuring solutions including case studies and diagrams, followed by a lively, open debate.
