dc.description.abstract A new strategy is needed in the housing industry. With a flux of unconventional residents moving back into the city an entire industry of "urban" housing has emerged. The products of this production housing are advertised as an alternative to suburban housing, but perhaps the only alternative it has is the vicinity to downtown. Construction techniques and design strategies deployed by the "urban" housing industry are no different than their counterparts working on Houston's periphery, producing a homogenized and compartmental housing as found in conventional suburban housing. Hybrid Housing is an alternative strategy for production housing. It uses industrialized techniques to produce a range of units that serve a variety of lifestyles. Assembled as a whole, these units react and grow into a complex body that nests private, public and communal territories within a mat of housing. By crossing social and physical relations, hybrid housing presents an alternative urban living.
