Designing Affordability: Quicker, Smarter, More Efficient Housing Now presents 23 case studies that address ways of reducing costs without compromising design quality. 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.

The strategies include reimagining public housing, leveraging land, building simply, deploying technology, rethinking home life, constructing modularly, and building incrementally.
