IPA “TOTAL RESET” SERIES CONTINUES IN HARLEM
Mayor 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.
In the spring, the IPA launched the “Total Reset” series with a Roundtable exploring ambitious, achievable ideas for public and affordable housing in New York. This summer, IPA Fellows respond to the roundtable discussion with housing proposals that connect design, policy, and community engagement. Follow their progress through our public events and online updates, announced via Facebook and Twitter.
The residency and installation are located in Broadway Housing Communities’ new affordable housing development in Sugar Hill, designed by architect David Adjaye. Fellows were nominated by top New York architects and housing experts and selected by a jury of Jonathan Kirschenfeld, Karen Kubey, Susanne Schindler, and Juliette Spertus.
Wednesday, June 25, 7-9 p.m.
No Longer Empty’s “If You Build It” opens, including the IPA “Total Reset” residency and installation.
