CoHo: 9 Ways To Build Community With Urban Housing

The Committee on Homelessness is excited to welcome Daniel Simons of David Baker Architects, a nationally renowned architecture firm based in San Francisco. This is event is part of the Housing Development Consortium’s Affordable Housing Week.

About the lecture:
“9 Ways” are design principles that provide a thoughtful framework for making better housing. Flexible and human-centric, these community-oriented strategies work together to elevate a building, improve wellness and stability, and support social bonds. The straightforward strategies range from the large-scale “Reweave the Urban Fabric” to the intimate “Get Personal.” They identify opportunities available to housing at all scales, and result in buildings that increase the quality of living for residents and neighbors alike.

About the speaker:

With more than 20 years of architectural experience —in design, construction documents, and construction administration—Daniel has focused on the field of multifamily housing. His award-winning projects include affordable senior and family housing, supportive housing for formerly homeless residents, modular housing, and market-rate mixed-use developments. Daniel uses his extensive knowledge of green building practices and progressive city planning to minimize the buildings’ environmental impact while improving the quality of life for residents.
