Drawing by a+t research group

When President Nixon’s Welfare Reform programme was launched, aimed at curbing the deterioration of American cities by building affordable high-rise housing, Sert and Jackson took part in the plan for Roosevelt Island designing a huge urban complex including over 1,000 dwellings, public spaces and amenities. In the more basic Eastwood blocks, they tried out the skip-stop gallery model, with access to three floors in order to economize on common spaces. The 3 m wide module was the base which a great variety of typologies could be adapted to.
