Graduate and undergraduate students are invited to participate in a 24-hour live, online, hackathon-style competition to pitch a proposal to solve the housing crisis in the US. Four prizes will be awarded, totaling $12,000.
In this presentation, Daniel McCue and Alexander Hermann, senior researchers at the Center, will review the findings of this year's State of the Nation's Housing report (released in June) and more recent data showing increases in house prices, rents, and interest rates.
US housing markets continue to cool but home prices and rents remain high, leaving millions —including a disproportionate share of people of color—struggling with housing cost burdens, priced out of homeownership, or without shelter at all.
Could intentional, multigenerational housing developments provide affordable and appropriate housing and services for both older adults and younger families and, in doing so, address growing concerns about isolation and loneliness?
In the 22nd Annual John T. Dunlop Lecture, Andrew Bernheimer, FAIA, will discuss what several affordable housing projects in New York City have taught him about architecture’s role in addressing housing-related challenges. His firm, Bernheimer Architecture (BA), is committed to “designing sustainable and resilient architecture by crafting productive environments for people and their communities.”
