Abstract
Decent housing available to the working class in America is in very

short supply. Manufactured housing could help to meet this basic

need. But community groups and politicians often reject manufactured

housing because they fear it will have a negative impact upon

property values and the aesthetic character of their community. This

thesis examines the reasons behind these fears, how the history of

manufactured housing has fed into these fears and what design

elements can allay these fears. Three site planning typologies are

developed using the factors found in the research, that create a good

neighborhood for both the residents and outside observers. The

typologies inform three designs that illustrate how manufactured

housing developments can be designed to fit compatibly into existing

communities.
