This studio will explore affordable housing design opportunities when the designer is the builder, and the builder a designer. Students will research and identify various multi-modal cost reduction strategies available situated within this alternative model of construction. This research will be tested through the design of a single family residence. These prototypical homes will take on low cost as a design driver, employ appropriate low energy solutions, and best practice inclusive design.
