How Design Can Transform Lives and Communities

Co-presented with Skid Row Housing Trust

Innovative downtown Los Angeles developments such as the New Carver Apartments, by Michael Maltzan Architecture, and the Abbey Apartments, by Koning Eizenberg Architecture, have radically upended the prevalent notion of “low-income housing”—long synonymous with continuing poverty and blight. CalArts President Steven D. Lavine welcomes architects from MMA, KEA, Killefer Flammang Architects and Lorcan O’Herlihy for an illuminating panel discussion on the role of design in realizing “supportive housing” for the homeless. The term supportive housing refers to the pairing of affordable, attractive apartments for homeless individuals and families with key services and treatment, with the goal of substantially transforming the quality of life for individuals and communities. The discussion also touches on the pairing of architecture and community transformation with partners such as Skid Row Housing Trust and the United Way of Greater Los Angeles.

Co-sponsored by AIA Los Angeles, ALOUD, United Way of Greater Los Angeles and the Urban Land Institute Los Angeles.
