The United States is seeing a resurgence in urban population. Many communities in and around Pittsburgh are seeing a renewed interest in old housing stock or tracts of land, and architects can play a large role in their responsible redevelopment.
This course will focus on ways that architects can provide expertise to underserved communities. Presenters will explore examples of programs that have been developed to help distressed communities turn the corner, maintain their existing population, and plan for growth. Lastly, the presenters will discuss ways to provide for a diverse population, help develop a community's assets, and set goals for implementation.
