Difference and Innovation in New Housing Typology

April 5, 2010

Project by Lingchen Liu and Chenglong Wang.

Responding to the individualization caused by globalization, this research developed new housing types using “left-over” sites in downtown Toronto as means to densify the city. The project breaks down the density by sprinkling a much finer grain into the city instead of adding chunk volumes to form a new field which is organized without hierarchy.
