An exhibit that's just opened at NYC's Center for Architecture examines the brief history of a housing type that incorporated elements of suburban housing at higher densities. Can low-rise high-density housing provide a model for affordable infill?

Yes, at least in Los Angeles there is a future for low-rise high-density housing. Which is basically what Los Angeles is completely made up of.

If row houses count as low rise high density I think this is very very much in our future.

I think there is. Row houses should count towards that.

No, not the traditional rowhouse:

Quote:
Modeled a bit after suburban homes, these low-rise high-density buildings reached prominence in the 1970s. This type of housing serves two functions: 1) to intensify land use as urban growth escalates by providing higher density; and 2) to improve living conditions by using suburban housing characteristics such as more open space, more light, and a closer connection to the ground. These homes offered all the amenities of urban living—access to public transportation and cultural amenities—with a more open, less claustrophobic environment. The most celebrated example of this model in the US is Brooklyn’s Marcus Garvey Park Village, from 1973. (Indeed, the year Marcus Garvey opened to the public, the Museum of Modern Art launched an exhibition hailing its achievement called “Another Chance for Housing.”
