Making a Case focuses on contemporary housing in the United States and the future of the American home. Like the Case Study program post World War II, it seizes on a critical moment in the history of America as a time to reinvent the single family dwelling unit. It is post-crisis rather than post-war. The crisis in this case is the collapse of the housing bubble, with its partnering causes and aftershocks: the reality of less oil, the urge to re-urbanize and the results of economic reorganization. Organized in two sections, design cases and commentary, Making a Case draws together international contributors from a variety of disciplines to address this critical moment for housing in America.

Emily A. Abruzzo is a designer and author living in New York.
