Excuse Our Dust

Speakers from AIA Austin’s DesignVoice Committee will share the design and development of microhomes at the Community First! Village, and subsequent work around conducting a post-occupancy study of these homes. Community First! Village is a 27-acre master planned community that provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for the disabled and chronically homeless in Central Texas. DesignVoice led the design competition that produced these homes. The post occupancy study analyzes the successes and shortcomings of Phase 1 designs and process. In direct engagement with residents, DesignVoice will incorporate feedback for the direction of Phase 2 designs for the Village. We’ll present resident, staff, and designer interviews, as well as the first round of analysis, for feedback as we move into Phase 2.

*This is an "Excuse our Dust" Session!*
Excuse our Dust is  a series of interactive workshops focused on in-process projects, from a women-led, San Francisco-based group working to support diversity in the field of public interest design to an East Baltimore community developing cooperative ownership models. Participating groups are interested in feedback, so come with questions and ideas.
