High-quality residential structures are much more than merely a series of\ndifferent floor plans. First and foremost, the urban apartment house mediates\nbetween the private refuge and the public space of the city. In the\nprocess, boundaries between inside and outside are negotiated on a wide\nvariety of scales. Housing+ focuses on investigating spatial and architectural\nas well as social and communicative interfaces in residential construction.\nThe publication is divided into four chapters – “Urban Planning,” “The\nGround Floor,” “Building Structure,” and “Façade” – to which sixty-seven\ninternational projects are assigned. These four thematic focuses are discussed\ncomprehensively in the essays that introduce the chapters, and the individual\nprojects are analyzed in brief under these same aspects. Comparable plans—drawn especially for this book—supplement the typological descriptions. The broad spectrum of projects selected covers urban apartment block construction from towers, block structures, row houses, and gaps between buildings, to housing complexes in outlying urban areas.
