A colleague of mine directed me to this wonderful forum as he thought it might help me find answers to a question I have. I'm happy to be here, it is quite the community!
I'm doing some research into mid-rise buildings and I'm looking to find good North American examples (photos, reports, theory) of mid rise implementations -- say from five to eight storeys. If anyone has any thoughts or advice I'd very much apprecite it!
Also, beyond Allan Jacobs, is there any good theory out there about street width-to-heigh ratios? I'm trying to come up with some suggestions for a street that is 35m wide in regards to building height/massing.
Many thanks in advance,
