What Affordable Housing should afford

Environmental and economic inequality are interconnected, with housing as an instrumental material witness to this relationship. This project’s aim is to better connect two existential threats of our time: the housing crisis and climate cataclysm, and endeavors to address not only these and future consequences of acceleration, but also to present a prototypical vision of a healthier and more inclusive home for residents of the area and city. The project’s resilience was designed with respect to vignettes informing the ways in which the daily lives of tenants can be enriched and improved.

As such, special attention was given to the importance of: (1) supporting the community social structure and economic livelihoods of residents; (2) reducing the vulnerability of residents to environmental risks and stresses; (3) enhancing the personal security of residents in the face of threats of displacement; (4) empowering communities through enhanced capacities to share in their own governance.
