Event Description

The second annual Affordable Housing Design Leadership Institute will bring together leaders on the frontline of affordable housing design and development for a two-and-a-half day session focused on innovation and best practices. Two teams: a Design Resource Team of seven expert design innovators and a Development Team of seven forward-thinking developers with projects in the schematic design phase, will join forces to create solutions that will impact real affordable housing projects nationwide. The session will help community development leaders put into action best practices in sustainable community design, transit-oriented development, and green architectural design.

About the image: David Baker’s recently completed Richardson Apartments will provide permanent supportive housing for a very-low-income, formerly homeless population. Baker, a 2010 AHDLI Design Team member, collaborated with Laura Shipman, an Enterprise Rose Architectural fellow working with Community Housing Partnership in San Francisco, CA.

Limited seats are available for GSD students, faculty, and staff - please email Brooke King at events@gsd.harvard.edu by Monday, September 19 if you are interested in attending. To attend the keynote lecture by Michael Maltzan on September 21, please RSVP here.


Organized by Enterprise Community Partners in collaboration with Harvard Graduate School of Design.
