This both thought-provoking and useful work will help the professional architect, builder, and developer alike glean what has been proven successful and what has not in the recent design of multi-residential housing in the USA. Using a carefully planned questionnaire sent to key architects and developers of multi-residential projects, the authors have compiled extremely useful data on the performance and success of exemplary housing designs. Each case study will be amply illustrated with site plans, architectural plans and elevations, photographs of the built projects, and aerial photographs of the projects. It uses the case study method to examine how actual multi-residential housing developments have succeeded or failed in meeting developers and clients' needs, establishes a uniform method of evaluating the performance of housing design based on perceived objectives of cost and profit and client/host community satisfaction.
