Creating More Housing without New Construction
September 14, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 amFree - $10
Meeting our need for housing in New York is tough. We need to build more homes – but we also need to do more with what we have. Better using existing buildings and smaller lots, and finding other creative ways of making room for more people to live is imperative to solving our housing crisis. It’s also no less important for our city that this type of new housing is as livable and well-designed as other more traditional housing.
Join RPA, the Center for Architecture, The Architectural League of New York, local architects, and others to explore how we can create alternative housing such as basement apartment, accessory dwelling units, and small infill, in a way which adds to our built environment and produces the type of quality housing we need.
This program is related to the exhibition The Future of the New York Metropolitan Area: The Fourth Regional Plan.
