From the Publisher. Building types and individual parts of buildings and their possibilities that have the potential to generate and transform are shown in this book with an effort to convey solution-orientated information for residential architecture. The design of buildings, of the outdoor spaces that surround them or are woven into them, of the systems of access and circulation, and of the spatial configurations of the apartments themselves are the typological categories to which over a hundred multistory residential buildings have been examined. Typology + offers knowledge and inspiration for the synthesis of the living spaces, the outdoor spaces and their access and possibilities for communication: The design of the building volume in its entirety, as it speaks to its surrounding, becomes a part of the city that it shapes at the same time.
