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. As a research affiliate at the Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies at Princeton, she has pursued work on the institutional and ecological factors surrounding the concept of the museum. Jonathan D. Solomon is the author of PA 26: 13 Projects for the Sheridan Expressway and teaches architectural design University of Hong Kong.
