Deidre Schmidt (LF ’08) and her consulting practice One Roof Global was engaged by World Bank and the government of Indonesia to assist key ministries (Housing, Planning and Public works among them) to formulate a comprehensive and integrated housing policy framework. The framework will help Influence the newly elected presidential administration in meeting the needs of a rapidly urbanizing population.

Schmidt brought on another Loeb, Matt Nohn (LF ’14) to lead the incremental housing pillar of this work while she focuses on public and rental housing.  The two have worked together both pre- and post-Fellowship, co-taught a class on lowest cost housing design and finance at the Harvard GSD and presented at the World Urban Forum last year.
