Title: Ephemeral Population : Housing for a Transient Workforce
Author: Hoffer, Eric
Abstract: Western North Dakota is currently experiencing a tremendous oil boom which is attracting people from all over the country because of the prospects of money, work, and a better way of life. Communities are desperately trying to keep up with the needs that the industry demands. This thesis project will examine how these communities deal with the problems associated with an oil boom, how their decisions affect the viability and sustainability of the community in the long run, and what should be considered in order to ensure a positive future. This is a residential typology that is able to respond to the volatility of the oil business.
