Tower, Slab, Superblock – Social Housing and Futures

The Architectural League of New York, December 2016

‘Tower, Slab, Superblock: Social housing legacies and futures will examine the history, current status, and prospects of high-rise and superblock residential development. The conference will confront questions of design and policy:

  • What does it mean to reconsider this building stock as an asset, rather than a liability or failure?
  • How can the building stock be reimagined to better serve current residents and future generations?
  • What roles can architects, designers, and affiliated professionals play in housing crises?’

Geraldine Dening and Simon Elmer were invited to participate in Tower, Slab, Superblock which was organized by The Architectural League of New York and hosted by the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art.
