NYIT Housing Studio | Palazzolo Studio Introduction


Contemporary housing exists as a complex tapestry of economic, social, and political factors. These factors combined with local, regional, and global concerns about density and population provide a fertile ground for new developments towards architectural innovation. How can one use precedents from the past to inform current discussions through the forum of architectural design? How can the strategic organization of housing units become a critique on contemporary conditions while simultaniously providing a comfortable complex for residents.

Over the next 12 weeks, Third-year Architecture students of New York Institute of Technology School of Architecture and Design will attempt to answer these questions through a sequence of design problems. Prof. Jamie Palazzolo will serve as the moderator of this program. The students will be given open access to the service provided by this blog, while keeping in mind the advantages of weekly postings to show process and development.
