9 Ways to Make Housing for People

Pragmatic and imaginative, this book is a modern manual for urban housing—getting it built and making it great. Written for design professionals and students as well as residents, developers, and city officials, 9 Ways to Make Housing for People explains core principles and strategies that help communities achieve real quality and value in new housing. Replete with examples, the book is jargon-free and easy to use.

David Baker Architects is a pioneer in urban housing, with an award-winning design portfolio of more than 15,000 homes nationwide. The 9 Ways have been presented in cities across America and were featured in an exhibit at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum in New York City.
