The Future of Public Housing Roundtable convenes practitioners and public housing residents to discuss the future of housing as an infrastructure which demands greater allocation of public resources.  The conversation builds upon the objectives of the National Public Housing Museum’s US premiere presentation of House Housing: An Untimely History of Architecture and Real Estate.  

The ongoing House Housing research project conducted by the Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture at Columbia University encourages historically informed public conversation -- like this roundtable -- about the intersection of architecture and real estate development.  Strategies and actions on the table this morning engage current public housing residents, scholars, policymakers and practitioners while galvanizing and educating allies in the general public.

Panelists include:
Jennifer Scott, Director Jane Addams Hull-House Museum
Todd Palmer, Associate Director and Curator, National Public Housing Museum
Teresa Cordova, Director, Great Cities Institute, University of Illinois at Chicago
Rasmia Kirmani Frye, Director of Public/Private Partnerships, New York City Housing Authority
Jacob Moore, Co-curator of House Housing, Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture, Columbia University.

Moderated by Nadine Maleh, Executive Director, Institute of Public Architecture.
