Since World War II, housing has undergone a series of radical transformations in the United States, from the rise of the suburbs in the '50s to today's crisis of homelessness for millions. This course will explore the role of government and public policy in this transformation and seek to create a model of what public policy concerning housing should be in the 21st century.
Students design housing plans for the city of Middletown from the perspective of housing consumers, housing producers, and government officials.
