Sauer, Louis Edward

(1928–)
American architect and design theorist whose work focused on over 90 residential and urban design commissions in differing contexts, from central city urban infill to suburban and rural areas, and new town developments at Reston, VA; Columbia, MA; and Montreal, Quebec. The conceptual innovation of most of these housing designs was a 12-foot-wide structural and functional module, which was part of a grid.
