RESIDENSITY
A CARBON ANALYSIS OF RESIDENTIAL TYPOLOGIES

Published December 2018

Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture's RESIDENSITY is an analysis of nine residential building typologies with the goal of developing a deeper understanding of the relationships between different building densities in respect to the amount of land and infrastructure required to support them. The book explores how much energy, both embodied and consumed, is used in each typology. It investigates the relationship between density and open space from the viewpoint of sustainability, carbon emissions, and carbon sequestration, factoring in each to determine what building typology is the most sustainable on a comparative basis.
