The Brooklyn Typology Project: Urban Omnibus

By August 13, 2009 No Comments

The Urban Omnibus is an online creation of the Architectural League to create a new kind of conversation about design and New York City. A fascinating website in itself they have also just posted a great write up of the The Brooklyn Typology Project.

The Brooklyn Typology Project provides photographs and data describing Brooklyn, you can browse by housing type, density, housing units per acre, decade, date of build, neighborhood or simply by location. We have just spent a good half hour rummaging around the site and especially like the ‘industrial’ section under housing type, its a neat way to explore residential density.
