Parking Garage Housing

In looking at the future of affordable housing in American cities, two things become abundantly clear: we don't have enough affordable housing stock, and we have too much parking. In the US, we have 105 million parking spots, or 5 spots for every single vehicle on the road; that takes up about 6500 square miles of land in cities, larger than the entire state of Connecticut. 

The future of self-driving cars could render useless the large and numerous parking garage structures in our cities. Rather than tearing them down to build new, this vision explores the possibility of using prefabricated micro-units to retrofit these bare-bones, car-centric concrete structures into a lively, sustainable, and cool human-centric housing program.
