Housing in New York City is enmeshed in racist and exclusionary legacies that continue through the work of planning, architecture and development. Over an ‘action hour’, the Housing Lab team will describe and invite feedback on their current projects and plans to more explicitly integrate an anti-racist agenda into the current lab engagements, methods of working, and connections with the broader GSAPP community.

The session will be facilitated by Bernadette Baird-Zars, Juan Sebastian Moreno, and Ericka Song, along with the broader housing lab student team.

The links below are articles and research referenced during this discussion, which were entered into the chat and provide expanded information on the subjects discussed.

The Housing Lab team shared the slide presentation CURRENT WORK, PLANS, AND POSSIBILITIES which was used throughout the event to share ideas.

Mark Barksdale ‘76 MS Health Services & Design ‘84 MSUP suggests the Harlem River Houses and the Williamsburg Houses could be studied as early prototypes of design and financing of affordable housing. He also mentions Community Design Corporations as examples of community lead planning efforts to be reviewed as case studies, including The Real Great Society lead by Harry Quintana and The East Harlem Triangle Plan written by the Architect’s Renewal Committee in Harlem (ARCH) for The Community Association of the East Harlem Triangle (CAEHT).
