Designing Affordability in the Press

Designing Affordability examines the ways in which architects, engineers, planners, policy makers and ordinary citizens are creating innovative ways to reduce the cost of housing, increase opportunity, rethink the way we live and show new ways to build and maintain structures. Taking on various elements necessary for the production of housing, developers, individuals, governments and architects are designing affordability and creating models for addressing the crisis and creating new opportunities for us all.
