Innovative architecture that gives hope and dignity to our neighbors who have lost their homes

From award winning design solutions to volunteer service for non-profits and local governments, architects across the country are having a profound impact on addressing the myriad challenges in providing safe, decent and affordable housing to our most vulnerable neighbors. Los Angeles is incubating some of the most progressive solutions to housing insecurity in the nation. Spend the tour visiting outstanding projects with leaders of Skid Row Housing Trust, who have in their 30-year history housed over 10,000 homeless individuals in 26 Permanent Supportive Housing buildings. Join the AIA Housing and Community Development Knowledge Community to unpack these complex issues.

This Educational Tour is a partnership with the AIA Housing and Community Development Knowledge Community
