When public housing was first introduced as a program on the heels of the Great Depression, its image was a largely positive one, resulting as it did from the confluence of modernism, marketing, and media representation. This led to the eventual acceptance of an otherwise radical, and what some considered deeply un-American, program. Public housing design, therefore, not only marked a transformation in neighborhood form from "slum" to streetless superblock; it also entailed a shift in symbolic and metaphorical associations. Quite precipitously, initial support for public housing eroded, owing to the social, political and economic vagaries of each time period since its inception. Specifically, as the beneficiaries changed from working whites to poor blacks and other minorities, the relevant policymakers' overarching social and political agenda changed as well - and with it, their vision of how the design of public housing could help achieve these objectives. From the building of high-rise "projects" out of the "slums" - and in turn, low-rise HOPE VI neighborhoods out of the "projects" - what has resulted has been one draconian experiment in design after the other, often leaving in its wake the rubble of prior oversights. In this scenario...

In recent years, the Chinese government transformed their national system of housing provision and introduced market mechanisms. The consequent boom in residential real estate development and the emergence of speculative practices dramatically increased housing prices in cities. Low- and moderate-income households are being priced out of homeownership. The lack of affordable urban housing is increasingly framed as an issue of equity that is linked inherently to China's political identity as a communist nation. As such, the central government is experimenting with policy to address the issue of affordability in a commercialized housing market. The controversial "70 percent, 90 square meters rule" is one such policy that has started discussions on the development of mixed income housing. Given the current policy trend, private developers can reasonably foresee requirements to incorporate affordable housing in future developments. The primary purpose of this thesis is to highlight the growing segregation of housing based on income in China and examine the concept of mixing incomes for future urban housing developments. New luxury developments in urban centers are clustering high-income households together while spatially separating them from low- and middle-income households.; (cont.) This thesis does not address how to supply more affordable housing...

Lawrence, Massachusetts is one of a number of post-industrial cities in the northeastern United States that has the potential to convert underutilized industrial buildings into a valuable community asset, namely housing. Yet, despite a plentiful supply of historical industrial buildings, the increasing popularity of residential mill conversions, and a strong housing market in eastern Massachusetts, no mill has been converted for the purpose of housing in Lawrence in the last decade. This thesis argues that if mill owners take action and partner with developers to undertake redevelopment, and partner with community development organizations and the local government, key barriers to development in Lawrence could be dismantled in order to prepare the mill district for redevelopment. Targeted primarily at mill owners and community development organizations in Lawrence and similar cities, this thesis identifies key barriers to residential redevelopment that exist in untested residential conversion markets like Lawrence. It then provides recommended solutions to overcome those barriers, learned from other conversion projects within a 50 mile radius of Boston. In doing so, this thesis demystifies the development process to help mill owners and community development organizations acquire a more realistic vision for the redevelopment of the mill district. In the process...
