Dwelling, Privately and Publicly

ARH 619: Comprehensive Design Studio
Mixed Use Development – Dwelling, Entertainment and Service


Dwelling in the city is an broad and deep subject. It has been, and will continue to be, explored and criticized in many disciplines, not the least of which is architecture. The relationships of the individual, the community, the city are dynamic and varied. Similarly, the house, the apartment building, the neighborhood fabric are at once distinct and connected. Where are the boundaries between these entities, these scales? How are they independent and interdependent, and how can they be both?

As the city, San Francisco in particular, grows inward and more dense, space becomes a premium. This pushes inward against the outward-expanding autonomous home. As the dwelling shrinks in response to the demands of its context, it must rely on its context, its community.
