Urban Housing Atlas

Book Launch and Exhibition of Utile’s Housing Atlas

Urban Housing Atlas is a compendium of more than twenty multi-family projects that Utile, a Boston-based architecture and urban planning firm, has designed from 2003 through 2007. The book was originally developed as an in-house manual to record housing solutions and to share the knowledge gained among the office’s growing staff. In its expanded form, the publication displays many of the discoveries of Utile’s extensive involvement with housing in the region’s mid-market urban infill sites. As part of its design methodology, the firm always seeks an approach that produces innovation as well as interesting and marketable units – all within tight constraints of regulatory codes and without sacrificing efficiency and development realism.

This book represents the first in a series of publications supported by pinkcommabooks, a division of the pinkcomma gallery.
