Imagining Housing for Today, by Michael Kimmelman – Models for Contemporary Urban Housing
Posted by the editors on Friday, 18 November 2011
Michael Kimmelman, the architecture critic for The New York Times, has written a very interesting article entitled “Imagining Housing for Today” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times, looking at Bronx Park East by Jonathan Kirschenfeld, and other models for affordable rent, flexible, contemporary urban housing adapted to the actual needs of today’s urban populations. Thoughtful and challenging, Kimmelman advocates a fresh look at building codes, financial support and architecture and design as a necessary way forward in the creation of socially responsible, well-designed, urban housing.
The article includes an fascinating 8-image slideshow, New Housing Models for a Changed New York.er
