With the recent passage of LA County’s Measure H and the City of LA’s Measure HHH (as well as recent momentum at the State level to streamline housing production), public support for solutions to homelessness and housing affordability is markedly changing. On Friday, July 14th, AIA|LA will host the second annual D4D2 DESIGN FOR DIGNITY conference to focus on solutions to address homelessness, housing affordability, and healthy neighborhoods.
The conference will explore a series of questions: how can the design community implement elements of Measures H and HHH to better serve those in need? What innovative design solutions and resilient programs are possible in this shifting political climate? How do we channel investments to enhance the quality of life in our communities and increase amenities for all without displacing anyone or causing additional people to be priced-out of their neighborhoods?
