summary The Houston Street Project poses a far greater challenge to information management than its relatively small size seems to imply. This high-end residential development, located in an up-and-coming New York neighborhood, negotiates an incredibly complex set of rules and relationships, such as: irregular site geometry, proximity to MTA tunnels, and ‘special district’ codes, where the use of masonry was required. Masonry implies a monolithic treatment of the facade, yet panelization, due to cost, demands that fabrication dictates the design. The model, then, required us to know the location of every brick on the facade, for not a one could overhang any of its adjacent neighbors by more than 3/4” at any given point.
