The modern world presents a dilemma in its inequalities of domesticity for people from a low socio-economic background. Public housing can provide a solution for this issue, but the properties of such buildings differ drastically in their architectural sensibilities from the outdated uniform Queensbridge blocks in New York to elite Quayside Village In Canada. The former is an outdated, low-cost living opportunity (Barry). The latter Quayside, on the other hand, is a comfortable residence that grew into a community. (World's 3 Most Successful Housing Projects"). The experience of Quayside Village allows the residents to engage city life by having amenities within walking distance. The complex provides communal facilities, and commercial spaces as well as private areas that residents can use to organize social events and grow their food. Quayside can serve as a foundation to develop a new public housing typology and create new standards for a community in Las Vegas that aims to enrich the local experience within a public housing environment.
