Affordable and Sustainable Multi-Family Housing: Strategies and Case Studies

May 19, 2021

A persistent housing shortage in California and beyond is driving demand for affordable, sustainable housing which also serves overarching concerns of equity and social justice. This session will feature seasoned professionals — from architecture, engineering and non-profit development — who will present case studies and discuss proven and effective strategies, as well as lessons learned from a new generation of multi-family housing that is both affordable and sustainable, with many reaching LEED Platinum and/or net zero energy targets.

Gail Brager, PhD, is interested in adaptive thermal comfort, mixed-mode buildings, and biophilic- and experiential-based design. She recently co-authored a set of ‘nudges’ to the existing adaptive comfort standards to improve comfort in commercial buildings while potentially reducing energy use. She is currently writing a book about multi-sensory design strategies, intersecting building and health sciences with architectural design guidelines. Gail is also CBE’s Associate Director and Professor of Architecture at UC Berkeley.
