Changing values in U.S. public housing policy and design

Karen A. Franck

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The modernist legacy in architecture, planning, and policy in the U.S. has prized universality, standardization, separation, and stability. These underlying values are still apparent in many areas including policies, designs, and assumptions in public housing. At the same time, new housing programs and designs reveal an emerging emphasis on other values -- on particularity, difference, and connection.
