Modern American Housing brings together the most enlightened thinkers from the worlds of architecture, social practice, and real estate development to present the latest developments in the design and construction of new housing stock in re urbanizing cities throughout the United States. New housing is grouped into three sections, housing towers, reused historical structures, and urban infill, and documented with photographs, pre-construction renderings, floor plans, and maps indicating location in urban settings. An accompanying essay and a discussion with urban planners, architects, and policy-makers round out this fresh look at the past and future of the American house.
