Designing Affordability

Once–Future Office designed the exhibition identity and graphics for an international exhibition at the Center for Architecture and University of Sydney to assess affordable housing in New York City and Australia and showcase groundbreaking case studies and strategies for future thinking about affordability. We worked with the curator and consultants to disseminate dense housing and policy information into graphics that could be universally understood.

Designing Affordability examines how architects, engineers, planners, policy makers, tenants, and homeowners are crafting innovative ways to reduce the cost of housing and increase opportunities by rethinking how we build, maintain, and occupy structures. Case study projects are presented alongside quantified visualizations of what affordability means for residents of NYC and Sydney, Australia.
