linking housing to development at aia atlanta

It isn’t a coincidence that as even naysayers admit the economic recession is over in the US, conversations linking housing to a wide range of ramifications (especially health outcomes) are on the rise. Government funding priorities will be shifting quickly in coming years, and it is important that housing not be pigeon-holed as a single funding use, but an investment with long and wide ranging returns. In particular, economic development could lead the charge by rallying around housing as a priority that supportsĀ a capable work force, attracts new businesses, and could potentially stem the tide of declining populations in rural areas.

You can be a part of this conversation at the AIA National Convention in Atlanta next week by joining “The Role of Housing Design in Community and Economic Development” pre-convention workshop, or some of the other events shown on the postcard below.
