Entry Description

This research project investigates the risk topic of affordable housing and how the increasing population of cities drives a bigger gap between the demand for affordable housing and the funding from city councils. The hypothesis is that cities will need new flexible, sustainable, and programmatic solutions for the new housing models they develop. Furthermore, the project offers a computational design tool of which city councils can pick and choose host buildings for their parasites based on a variety of parameters that they can customize for their particular situation.
