Roof by Roof

Roof by Roof proposes a strategy to combine the large -scale provision of new affordable housing with the repair, renovation and future proofing of existing stock, with the aim of bringing value to NYCHA as a housing provider and benefiting existing and future residents alike. The fundamental premise of Roof by Roof is to ask how the demand for new affordable housing and requirements for extensive repair and renovation of NYCHA’s existing stock can be met as a part of a combined approach, in the face of large-scale federal funding cuts.

 

Roof by Roof is a collaboration between PRO and the London based firm Karakusevic Carson Architects.
