About this event

As cities grow, we hear a lot about urban-scale plans for developing greener, healthier neighborhoods. But how do we think about healthy housing at the scale of individual dwellings, and what are the future possibilities? This panel discussion brings together experts in housing to discuss raising the bar on standards for livability, including the use of sustainable materials, accessibility across generations, and the integration of nature and fresh air as part of the interior landscape for every urban dweller. Small design decisions can yield an enormous benefit to residents. Experts will discuss case studies that address both new construction and retrofitting.
