2016 Urban Housing Forum: Room for Growth

The Urban Housing Forum will examine how housing design and policy can serve as catalysts for livability and quality of place in an increasingly dense city. This full-day program will include presentations on innovative projects across scales and typologies; an exploration of new regulatory and development strategies; and an investigation into housing’s unique and significant role in shaping individual lives, creating a sense of community, and the overall design of the city. During the forum we will explore what it will take for Seattle to become a model for balancing growth and density to create a livable city for all.
