2014 Institute: Sustainable, Connected Communities

Hosted by the University of Southern California, Enterprise’s fifth annual Affordable Housing Design Leadership Institute (AHDLI) will take place in Los Angeles on September 16 - 18, 2014.

The theme for this year’s Institute is “Sustainable, Connected Communities,” highlighting those projects in which design excellence enables residents and communities to achieve the full promise of transit-oriented neighborhoods and green infrastructure.

The Institute seeks to answer the following questions: How can L.A. become a national model for transit-oriented development? What have other cities achieved and what are the policy implications of these lessons learned? Which design components have the greatest impact in improving neighborhood fabric and quality of life for residents?

PLACEMAKING:
LANDSCAPE, ARCHITECTURE AND COMMUNITY
