Frank Dimster presents the masterplan project for a housing development in the Bahamas. Dimster discusses how this project was generated from the access conditions, by car and boat, and a concern for maintaining privacy between living units while simultaneously allowing for pleasant interior and exterior environments for the community. He goes on to answer questions from the audience regarding the contribution of architects to family living, their responsibility to address not only the elites but also the minorities.
