Housing Density Housing construction for the greatest number is an indicator of the social character of a society. Most people want to live in a single-family house. Is it possible to realize the qualities of single-family housing in high-density construction?
Almost 400 students of the Vienna University of Technology worked on this topic in the course of a design studio and – supervised by fourteen renowned Austrian architects – developed housing construction projects of various densities and environments. Selected works indicate the direction, but also the limits (of growth).
