New mayor Bill 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.

The Institute for Public Architecture was created to tackle these issues creatively. With this event we are supporting efforts to improve public housing in New York by bringing together experts and collecting examples of ambitious, achievable  ideas.

As a community of architects, developers, activists, and researchers, the IPA is committed to quality architecture in the public interest. The shift in attention to affordable housing offers the opportunity to join together in making our city a vibrant and livable place for all New Yorkers.
