Future Housing: A Co-live Scenario

How can we redesign and rethink housing to better integrate the arrival of immigrants to their new city? Recently I finished a one-year fellowship with Urban Design Forum investigating escalating housing issues in New York City. My teammates and I presented a co-live scenario as  Arrival House for future housing. This project proposes a co-live scenario with integrated services for the early transition of new arrivals to New York City. It empowers new immigrants to achieve a sustained, enriched, and quality living experience.  We introduce the concept of co-living, regarding its historical precedents, current market, and potential opportunities for immigrant housing in NYC.

We prototype CO-LIVE as a new housing typology at the unit, building, and neighborhood scales with design principles and planning strategies. Finally, we validate this prototype by working collaboratively with a local housing advocacy organization for a proposed site in Richmond Hill, Queens.

This section dedicates to data analytics, which include all what I’ve learned through data analytics practice. I’ll write the posts in subjects, such as data mining, parsing, feature engineering, or modeling. Occasionally, I’ll touch on what I’ve learn when working on data analytics with a client, and how it is different from academic research.

These posts may be helpful for people who are interested in data science, specifically in urban domain (transportation, land use, housing, population, or business).
