“Missing Middle Housing”: a book about new housing needs

People who live on their own, couples, multi-generational homes… The United States, like many other countries, is experiencing a lifestyle transformation process, in which people need more housing options to choose from.  

The book Missing Middle Housing compiles the differences between the types of housing already available in the North American country and those really demanded by citizens.  

Its author, Daniel Parolek, inspired a new housing choice movement, which shares the title with the book and which defends the need to provide a greater range of housing typologies and the importance of doing so in sustainable and accessible locations.  

Some of the housing types proposed by Parolek are the duplex, cuadruplex or multiplex. These scaled buildings would perfectly adapt to the existing residential neighborhoods and would support the accessibility of pedestrians, retail stores and public transport options.
