AIA: Housing & Community Development Workshop
March 14 @ 9:00 am - 6:30 pm$140
Avenues of Exchange: Building Equitable, Healthy, and Resilient Cities
A partnership between the AIA Housing and Community Development Network & ACSA
Increasingly, cities are challenged with ensuring equitable growth and ecological health in the face of redevelopment. Architecture and community development professionals are at the forefront of this effort. Using Denver as a springboard, educators and practitioners will gather to learn more about housing and community development projects and practices that promote equity and ecology in the built environment.
Panel sessions will focus on The Denver Story, exploring successes and lessons learned from mixed-income multifamily developments in the fast-growing city, and a discussion on maintaining affordability and preventing displacement nationwide. Workshop participants will also hear from a national leader in development that promotes healthy neighborhoods that are responsive to both community and environmental priorities and tour the recently completed Mariposa District, among other Denver sites.
