Designing Housing for an Equitable Future
Event Description

As the effects of climate change are being felt, people that can't afford high utility bills are disproportionately impacted. Studio Completiva's research into solutions will be presented along with early findings for how housing design needs to be improved to ensure equitable buildings for all. The lecture will describe the challenges of construction and the environment currently faced by the building industry, detail case studies of successful strategies, and present a framework for designing better housing at an affordable level today. The lecture will provide attendees with a methodology for housing that is equitable in cost, comfort, and resilience. We'll outline design guidelines that advocate for better land use planning, green building certifications, and systems efficiency.

This event has been submitted for 1 GBCI LEED-specific BD+C & Homes CE hour and qualifies for 1 AIA learning unit.
