Over $100 million is committed to affordable housing every year in Washington, D.C., thanks to Mayor Muriel Bowser. Despite this, affordability is still an issue in the District. As a way to offer real-world solutions to the city’s problem, the Washington, D.C. chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIAlDC) is hosting a series of workshops where architects can shine a light on the ongoing affordable housing crisis.
According to the event description, Wiencek and Davis will use local case studies to explain how converting abandoned office and commercial spaces into multi-family housing can be a good solution to a lack of affordable housing.
The event will be hosted at the District Architecture Center at 421 7th Street NW.
