Housing Transformations: Density Done Right
Design professionals in the urban built environment often advocate for “good density.” But what exactly does that look like, and how specifically can the planning, design, and construction of housing options support vibrant communities? How can the integration of new housing center equity, sustainability and livability in rapidly changing neighborhoods? Join us for a full day program exploring housing transformations that advance density done right.

Keynote Speaker: Lorcan O’Herlihy | Founding Principal, LOHA
Since founding his firm in 1994, Lorcan O’Herlihy has utilized architecture as a catalyst of change to shape and enrich the complex, urban landscape of our contemporary cities. The work of his firm, Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects (LOHA), is guided by a conscious understanding that architecture operates within a layered context of political, developmental, environmental, and social structures. With studios in Los Angeles and Detroit, LOHA has built over 90 projects across three continents. O’Herlihy and LOHA have produced work that has been published in over 20 countries and received over 100 awards throughout the years including the AIA Los Angeles firm of the year, and the AIACC Distinguished Practice Award. In 2018, his firm was recognized as the #1 Design firm in the country by Architect Magazine’s Architect 50, an annual ranking of the top architecture firms in the country. The diverse work of the firm is recognized internationally, and ranges from art galleries, bus shelters, and large-scale neighborhood plans, to mixed-use developments, affordable housing projects, and university residential complexes. Each project by LOHA reinforces O’Herlihy’s belief that artistry and provocative design are key to building a vibrant, social space to elevate the human condition via the built environment.
