Roundtable convened by the Institute for Public Architecture
New mayor Bill de Blasio has declared "a total reset" for public housing in New York. At the same time, the decline of affordable housing options has become New Yorkers' greatest concern.
The Institute for Public Architecture was created to tackle these issues creatively. With this event, we are supporting efforts to improve public housing in New York by bringing together experts and collecting examples of ambitious ideas that work.
