Panel Discussion: Are High-Rise Residential buildings the answer?
Even as the pressures of urbanization have led government and industry alike to conclude “there is no way but up” to accommodate the next generation of housing needs, it is far from settled that the ideal typologies of high-rise residential buildings have been established. Disconnection from nature, neighbors and context, as well as inflexibility for growing and changing families, are among the unresolved issues, compounded by lack of affordability. This panel will examines potential solutions.
