BQE / From Hacking to Housing

UQ Principal Samir S. Shah, Amy Breedlove, and Dr. Jeffrey S. Nesbit were selected as Fellows at the Institute for Public Architecture (IPA) for the Fall 2020 residency program: “To BQE or Not to BQE”.  The team spent the eight weeks of the residency focused on design research, including analyzing current physical conditions of the study area along the BQE corridor from Red Hook to Cobble Hill including the waterfront area, developing novel prototypes of block types and infrastructure, and evaluating strategies for transforming future zoning laws and housing models.
