Overview

This unusual book gives the architect,builder,and developer a "living" record of the successes-and failures-in recent multiresidential housing throughout the United States. Using a detailed,carefully planned questionnaire,the authors asked leading architects,developers,and owners to describe the design objectives and the strategies they used to meet those objectives-including financial goals,energy and maintenance efficiency,and the levels of acceptance of those living in the residences and in the surrounding communities. The book provides in-depth case studies of multiresidential housing-including the highly praised Annie Maxim House in Rochester,Massachusetts-and a uniform method for evaluating housing design. Each case study is documented with site plans,architectural plans and elevations,and a complete photographic record.
