HIVE Dean Presentation – Design



Austin, TX


Anne Torney

Date & Time:

11.28.2018 | 11:50 am - 12:10 pm

Join HIVE Dean of Design and Mithun partner Anne Torney to explore how housing investment and development stakeholders might leverage new opportunities to gain agency in local housing development. Local opposition—either from elected or appointed officials or from community activists—grows as a barrier to affordable, attainable home and neighborhood development. Can design, architecture, engineering, planning, and place-making play a greater role to pivot the conversation away from battle and toward meaningful, mutual solutions to affordable, attainable home and neighborhood development?

Later, at 2:30pm, the discussion continues with “The Axis of Design and Community Support.” Panelists include Paul Shahriari, CEO/Founder of ecomedes; Mike Kingsella, Executive Director of Up for Growth National Coalition; and Kurt Goodjohn, Founder and CEO of Dvele.  Yan Krymsky, Design Director at Perkins+Will, will moderate.
