In September 2009, CHPC held a unique symposium at the Japan Society of New York which set the stage for the MAKING ROOM initiative.
Six housing design and planning experts from Tokyo, Barcelona, Leipzig, Montreal and San Diego came to New York City to share their expertise, experience, and insight into designing and planning compact, shared, and flexible housing that better reflect the real needs of our 21st Century households.
Each international guest presented their work to an audience of government officials and housing, architecture, and real estate experts and then were interviewed by a variety of industry leaders from New York. The symposium culminated in a discussion by Alex Garvin and Paul Goldberger.
