This symposium will assess the transformative potential in the architecture of urban housing in America in a challenging time. In the face of population growth, climate change, a degraded infrastructure, a material culture invested in superficial greenwashing and inequities in economic opportunity, a panel of prominent architects from various regions across the United States will gather to discuss the central issues of design that make urban housing successful. 

Following the lecture, there will be a brief conversation between Lawrence Scarpa and Dallas Morning News architecture critic Mark Lamster. Please see schedule listing below:
