Pugh + Scarpa and Enterprise Foundation launch Affordable Housing Design Institute

Bringing the benefits of design excellence to low-income communities nationwide, Enterprise Community Partners, Inc., in collaboration with Pugh + Scarpa, has announced the launch of the Affordable Housing Design Leadership Institute. The Institute will provide a structured forum for architecture and community development leaders from across the country to share best practices and solve real design challenges they currently face.

Katie Swenson, senior director of the Enterprise Rose Architectural Fellowship and Institute moderator said: "There is a critical need for increased collaboration between architects and community development practitioners. Design excellence incorporating sustainable building principles and participatory planning with the community not only improves the lives and health of residents, but is critical to the long-term financial viability of affordable housing. By bringing architects and community developers together, the Institute will raise frontline design and development leaders' capacity to tackle affordable housing's most pressing challenges." Like the Enterprise Rose Fellowship, the Institute will seek to unite a community-based approach to development with best practices in design.

The two-and-a-half-day Institute will take place at the University of Minnesota's Minneapolis campus in May 2010 where a design resource team of eight leading architects will work with nonprofit housing developers to address design challenges of affordable housing that is still in the planning phase. Design resource team members scheduled to participate include Lawrence Scarpa of Pugh + Scarpa Architects.
