Parsons the New School for Design, New York, NY

Innovations in affordable housing design and development, as well as community design, will be the focus of this year's Affordable Housing Design Leadership Institute taking place in New York city.  At this two-and-a-half day session, community developers and architects will intensively discuss the role of design and design practises through the lens of seven specific development projects. Design challenges will be discussed and the importance of schematic design in creating healthy, viable homes and neighborhoods. The goal is to improve design practises in affordable housing, which creates more livable and sustainable housing for low- and moderate income families. Participants will share challenges and creative solutions to spark ideas and knowledge on community and affordable housing design topics. To be considered as a developer participant, click here
