NYC's Housing Crisis conference graphic identity

Lost in the shadow of competing issues of economics, climate, racial equity, and the pandemic affecting New York City is a new chapter in the housing crisis, evidenced by multiple symptoms including sky-rocketing home prices, declining housing starts, record-setting homelessness, looming evictions, and a staggering affordability gap that has left more than half of NYC households unable to afford their rent.

On May 13, 2022, the Center for Architecture and its partners the IDC Foundation, NYU Schack Institute of Real Estate, and Architectural Record hosted a day-long conference bringing together leading housing experts, practitioners, researchers, journalists, policymakers, community activists, planners, and designers to discuss the causes, effects, and possible solutions to this newly emergent iteration of the ongoing housing crisis. NYU Schack Urban Lab took the lead in generating a report of the conference findings.
