Housing Brass Tacks: What Can Architects Do?

LMHQ, 150 Broadway, 20th floor
New York City, NY United States

The architect’s typical role in building or renovating housing is to answer a client’s brief, working within the confines of a prescribed budget and program. But in a world where “housing” and “crisis” have become married—shorthand for a widespread lack of affordability and the commodification of shelter—can the architect be more than a passive participant in a broken system?

Center for Architecture – Tafel Hall, 536 LaGuardia Place - Tafel Hall
New York, NY 10012 United States

In 2012, the City of New York adopted a package of revisions to the NYC Zoning Resolution, collectively called “Zone Green,” in order to facilitate more sustainable and energy-efficient design.

The Predicament of Architecture

The Great Hall, The Cooper Union, 7 East 7th Street
New York, NY United States

From the ethical perspective, architecture is contaminated by its art status, while from the artistic perspective, it is contaminated by its use status. Yet this is precisely…
