Affordable Housing’s Response to the Pandemic. While health concerns are now a global priority, this virtual event will consider how an economic downturn may exacerbate shortages of affordable housing.

Join McLaren Senior Associate and Pratt Professor Jesse Chrismer, PE on April 29th, as he discusses “Affordable Housing’s Response to the Pandemic.” While health concerns are now a global priority, this virtual event will consider how an economic downturn may exacerbate shortages of affordable housing.

Jesse and his fellow panelists hope to shed light on a healthy way for our communities to emerge from the pandemic by exploring the tenets of such practices as co-living, public-private partnerships, and placemaking.

The Pratt Institute School of Architecture is partnering with the Brooklyn Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Brooklyn) to offer free AIA-accredited courses that relate to COVID-19’s impact on architecture. Jesse’s panel will kick off the Executive Education Series that will focus on how architecture is changing with COVID-19 and ways the industry can be involved in recovery efforts. Participants will learn about:

  • Current affordable housing policy and practice
  • How the COVID-19 pandemic is influencing current affordable housing projects
  • How the COVID-19 pandemic will influence the future landscape of affordable housing
  • Resources for further developing their understanding of housing and public health

A Zoom meeting link will be emailed out to those who register prior to the event. Register through the eventbrite link on the left.
