Acts of Design: New Housing Paradigms in North America
This day-long conference assesses the current state of housing in North America through a combination of case-studies and expanded thematic discussions among architects, academics, and advocates. The conference specifically focuses on new workers housing typologies in Mexico City and designing across scales in cities spanning Toronto, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, and New York. A concluding panel discussion with Columbia GSAPP’s faculty will reflect on their respective housing projects as well as the pedagogical evolution of the school’s longstanding Housing Studio.
