Designing Affordability: Quicker, Smarter, More Efficient Housing Now examines how architects, engineers, planners, policy makers, tenants, and homeowners are crafting innovative ways to reduce the cost of housing and increase opportunities by rethinking how we build, maintain, and occupy structures. Affordable housing is typically focused on ensuring that a family at a certain income can qualify for a housing unit. Affordability is a broader concept referring to lifestyles, incomes and how housing can be designed, constructed and managed at a lower cost.

By addressing various elements necessary for the production of housing, the case studies, both local and global, presented in this exhibition endeavor to reduce project costs, whether by reimagining public housing, leveraging land, building simply, deploying technology, rethinking home life, constructing modularly, or building incrementally. Through these means, the projects are designing affordability.
