Since World War II, housing has undergone a series of radical transformations in the United States, including the rise of the suburbs in the 1950s, the beginning of mass homelessness in the late 1970s, and the mortgage and financial crisis of the past few years. This course explores the role of government and public policy in this transformation and considers various models for 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.
