Solving the Housing Crisis: Where does Design Fit In?

Fri September 14, 2018 at 8:30 am - 10:00 am


Housing developers are looking for innovative ways to create attainable housing, and they partner with multi-disciplinary design teams and municipalities to make these projects a reality.

Developing housing that is affordable requires solutions from multiple perspectives: developers look to designers for creative solutions in all aspects of a project, from identifying efficiencies in site design, construction, and resource use, to understanding how the housing will integrate into the existing community.

An architect, an urban planner, a municipal planner, and a developer will discuss the working partnerships between designers, developers, and municipalities and the role that design plays to create housing that meets the State’s needs.

LOCATION: AS220 Main Stage, 115 Empire St, Providence, 02903
1.5 LU

AIA Rhode Island is excited to partner with DesignXRI on the organization of this program for Design Week RI 2018.
