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.  Please see information attached and at the website 


Registration is limited to 200, and early bird registration ends July 31.

Both the exhibition and the symposium are based on the forthcoming book: Complex Housing: Designing for Density by Julia Williams Robinson (Routledge, publication due September 2017)
