Picturing West Coast density

From SPUR:

During the recent housing boom, West Coast architects and developers designed infill projects to create environmentally and socially conscious high-density housing. Many of these projects included a creative use of planning codes, which pushed the limits of design and addressed concerns such as parking, height and bulk. Join us for a panel discussion with Eric Naslund of Studio E Architects, Mike Corl of Vallaster Corl Architects and Roger Gula of Mithun.

Co-hosted with the San Francisco Chapter of the AIA and the San Francisco Housing Action Coalition. 1 AIA CES learning unit available.
