New Approaches to Solving
Santa Fe's Housing Crisis
Thank you to all of our Friends donors,
for making this event possible!
Join us for a public discussion of the
challenges of housing in Santa Fe.
Saturday September 22, 2018
2 pm to 4 pm
form & concept
435 S. Guadalupe Street
An expert panel, together with participating designers and the public, will examine the nature and extent of the current housing shortage, review innovative housing strategies that have been successful elsewhere, and identify opportunities for meaningful change within our city's physical and political landscape. The discussion will be moderated by Friends of Architecture Santa Fe, and audience participation is encouraged.
This panel discussion will serve as the kick-off for an open-format design charrette. The design and planning community will be invited to submit proposals that advance innovative and enlightened solutions, and envision a future where an even larger and more diverse population calls Santa Fe home.
This is a free event, and open to the public
No registration is required.

The Friends of Architecture Santa Fe Charrette Program
The charrette program seeks to raise awareness of the value of good design and critical thinking for improving the built environment by creating opportunities for the public and design professionals to engage in meaningful dialogue about contemporary issues of urban development, preservation and livability in our city. Design charrettes are visioning exercises that benefit our community and showcase the value of good design thinking.
