dc.description.abstractDensity in smaller cities can be difficult due to slow or stagnant population growth. In Halifax, future growth of the city relies heavily on the attraction and retention of young adults. Studies show that high costs of living, lack of employment opportunities, and lack of community attachment are the top reasons that young adults leave Halifax. This thesis addresses these needs through architectural methods inspired by Team 10 in the design of a mixed-use residential development. Two strategies are used: building with a flexible, modular infill system, and integrating the street and public space vertically throughout the building. Both tactics aim to reduce the cost of dwelling, provide opportunities for live/work, and increase a sense of place attachment. The resulting design should create an environment where a diverse population group can live, creating a strong community where young adults can become integrated affordably, enabling them to live in Halifax long-term.en_US
