Max Bond, Jr., FAIA, “Conversations: Equity Agendas” will the agendas of affordability, housing, and community. Mayor Bill de Blasio has promised 200,000 units of affordable housing. NYCHA is facing a ballooning deficit and a waiting list of 250,000. How does New York City embark upon a construction boom of affordable housing? The Institute for Public Architecture’s Total Reset program series explores ambitious, achievable ideas for public and below-market housing in New York. The series, featuring the inaugural IPA Fellowship, responds to Mayor de Blasio’s “total reset” for housing. What material forms, spatial politics, health issues and cost structures shape affordable housing in the New York City?
