Tim Love goes to “Design Camp”

Tim Love was one of eight design leaders invited to Detroit to participate in the 7th Annual Enterprise Affordable Housing Design Leadership Institute, held July 12th through 14th. “Design Camp” – the theme of this year’s Institute – gave six affordable housing development teams from across the country an opportunity to receive feedback on their conceptual design proposals. With three of the development teams based in Detroit, key staffers from the City of Detroit urban design and community housing departments were in attendance.

Tim was impressed with the breadth of the discussions, which focused on the intersection of development economics, community politics, landscape architecture, and the social implications of design decisions. He strongly recommends the program to affordable housing developers that haven’t yet participated.
