Lunch will be available
"Successful Struggles: Planning for Resilient Urban Housing" is organized by the Resilient Cities Housing Initiative (RCHI).
The Resilient Cities Housing Initiative (RCHI), directed by Professor Lawrence Vale, explores the ways that shelter and settlements can be designed to anticipate and respond to the 21st century environmental and security challenges of an urbanized and urbanizing world. At its core, RCHI investigates the socio-economic, political, and design implications of developing and redeveloping the housing environments of the least advantaged populations. RCHI is a research unit within the Center for Advanced Urbanism at MIT.
