Abstract :

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has recently pushed for the revitalization of public housing neighborhoods which have become  especially distressed through joblessness, crime,
and disrepair.  It has adopted the view  that public housing projects built between 1930 and 1980 with a modernist design–that is,form should follow function –has significantlyaffected the lives of their residents in a negative way (Goetz 2002).  HUD has attempted to combat these problems through the Home Ownership for People Everywhere (HOPE VI) program, which provides funds for demolition, rehabilitation, and revitalizationof troubled housing projectsunder the philosophyof poverty de-concentration.
