Design at Large: Housing Justice and Urban Design

8/4/2022; 58 minutes

Finding solutions to the housing crisis in California is daunting. Skyrocketing rents and housing prices, almost non-existent housing supply and pent-up demand, and pervasive homelessness result from a set of complex and multifaceted problems. Housing policy is also a contested territory in a state governed by "home rule" where over 482 local jurisdictions have authority to shape land use regulations and zoning. How can we reverse the downward spiraling trajectory and decades of discriminatory and unfair policies that have made housing within the state unaffordable and untenable for low- to moderate-income families?
