Multi-family housing is acknowledged as a complex residential building type. The architect's design must foster a sense of comunity in an urban setting, while also accomodating the need for a resident's individual space. This new volume documents more than 30 multi-family housing projects from around North America in full-colour photography accompanied by descriptive text. These multi-family projects represent some of the latest design trends in high-density living.
