The Density Atlas
The Density Atlas project originated in the Department of Urban Studies (DUSP) at MIT, which in 2019 transferred the project to Sasaki for stewardship and improvement. The Sasaki Foundation provided support in Sasaki’s effort.
With more than 120 case studies, the Density Atlas shows what density can look like in three distinct scales: district, neighborhood, and block. It allows designers to understand the implications of population, building footprints, and urban design in residential densities across the world, informing decisions regarding our built environment.
