The AIA Housing and Community Development Knowledge Community (HCD) tracks housing issues and develops relationships with industry stakeholders to encourage and promote safe, attractive, accessible, and affordable housing for all Americans.
The symposium will address best housing practices by bringing 12 Dutch presenters representing four Dutch projects (designer, developer, urban planner, government officials, etc. depending upon the project). Local politicians, designers, developers and builders will host field trips to significant housing in the Twin Cities. Dialogue about the Dutch innovative complex housing projects, and tours of local projects provide the basis for a discussion of best housing practices in the Netherlands and the United States.
