Meeting our need for housing in New York is tough. We need to build more homes but we also need to do more with what we have. Better using existing buildings and smaller lots, and finding other creative ways of making room for more people to live is imperative to solving our housing crisis. It’s also no less important for our city that this type of new housing is as livable and well-designed as other more traditional housing.
Join RPA, the Center for Architecture, The Architectural League of New York, local architects, and others to explore how we can create alternative housing such as basement apartments, accessory dwelling units, and small infill in ways that add to our built environment and produce the types of quality housing we need.
