The following is a plan and analysis of an American complex housing project from Minneapolis, Minnesota. The detailed plan is a portion of a larger analysis of Professor of Architecture Julia W. Robinson's research. Julia Robinson is researching Dutch Complex housing, and a comparison of Dutch vs. American housing will help her better understand how living spaces are designed in the Netherlands. These plans provide analysis of many ideas such as space, pathways, security, and private vs. public. A broader analysis is how the American housing differs from the Dutch housing in terms of how these complexes serves as more than just apartment buildings, but as unique multi-functional communities on each floor.
The posters were created to display our illustrations produced for a published research book as a part of our UROP studying Dutch complex housing. The work was produced by Corinne Deger, who is a part of the College of Design, Department of Architecture. Her research was facilitated by Professor Julia W. Robinson.
This research was supported by the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP).
