The Ecosystem of Housing

Can Portland actually fix unequal housing access and structural segregation? How do we get more affordable units? What are the invisible structures underpinning our neighborhoods?

Public policy, developer funding, construction costs, and social responsibility equally contribute to the changing face of urban development. Rather than viewing equitable housing through a separate lens of design, we approach housing development as an interdependent ecosystem.

At Ankrom Moisan’s 2019 Design Week Portland event, join an interdisciplinary discussion among developers, policymakers, architects, interior designers, builders, and cultural leaders as we explore multifamily housing design in Portland. Moderated by Ankrom Moisan, the conversation will explore how design can help bridge gaps in the industry to create more equitable and attainable housing. For everyone in our city.

Panelists include Julie Livingston, Sr. Project Manager at Home Forward and Chair of Portland Design Commission; Mike Steffen, Director of Innovation at Walsh Construction; Stefanie Kondor, Vice President of Development at Related Northwest; and Eric Cress, Principal at Urban Development + Partners.

Planning on joining us April 9th? Our doors are open! We have the capacity for at least 150 people and welcome you to be part of the conversation. Don't be shy.

First-time visitor to our 38 Davis office? There are so many convenient ways to help you arrive safely. The Old Town MAX stop and a SmartPark garage are across the street. And don't forget walking, biking, and rideshare.

This Festival Event has ended.
