HOUSING+ is a year-long program of lectures, exhibitions and studio inquiries focused on a topic that is of particular relevance to Los Angeles and Woodbury School of Architecture. We have invited our faculty and students to address the topic of housing in their courses during the 2019-20 academic year. As an institution of higher learning that integrates architecture, interior design, and real estate development programs, Woodbury School of Architecture believes that affordable housing is a critical architectural question and a basic human right. Our fall symposium, ‘Frontier Housing’ addresses the challenges of building housing on the fringes of our technological, geographical and social territories: city edges, international borders, and inner-city gaps. The housing symposium is free and open to the public.
