dc.description.abstractHow do we continue to densify our cities while providing a habitable environment for citizens to live and grow? With the increase in global population and the trend to move into cities, the urban core will have to be reinvented to accommodate this influx of people. My strategies for the future of the urban core include: first, vertical communities, which focus on equality and the sharing of resources to increase quality of life. Secondly, hybridization, which is the mixing of program designed to increase daily activity and to localize amenities. Thirdly, climate analysis, used to increase the performance and livability of the building. Lastly, context analysis, meant to place the building within the existing urban fabric without disrupting its continuity. This thesis envisions life in the city that provides a healthy living environment for all of its citizens to live and grow.en_US
