The conference specifically focuses on new workers housing typologies in Mexico City and designing across scales in cities spanning Toronto, Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York. A concluding panel discussion with Columbia GSAPP’s faculty will reflect on their respective housing projects as well as the pedagogical evolution of the school’s longstanding Housing Studio.
