"Affordable housing" typically refers to policy initiatives that ensure that residents at a certain income can qualify for housing units, but "affordability" is a broader concept. The exhibition examines how architects, engineers, planners, policy makers, tenants, and homeowners are crafting innovative ways to reduce the cost of housing by rethinking how we build, maintain, and occupy structures.
