Welcome to Season 7 – Fall 2019!
We are very excited to be hosted by Booth Hansen + Chicago Studio UIUC, and look forward to a productive workshop series full of learning opportunities, dialogue and exchange.
This season we will focus on connecting with communities around the question of what does successful age-friendly and accessible housing look like in Chicago? During Season 6 (Spring 2019) we dedicated our workshops to build knowledge and capacities into understanding Accessory Dwelling Units – from policy, design, education, funding and advocacy perspectives. During this season, we'll focus on developing a critical framing of this topic considering social equity and social justice.
