Ron Brooks will be talking at Mpact with Sarine Sahakian about wayfinding, universal design, technology and its challenges and opportunities.
In another Missing Middle Models blog post, we talked with Christine Walker of Navigate LLC about the strategies involved in establishing and operating a Community Land Trust to address housing needs, as well as design and market strategies that are shaping equitable communities in mountain destinations like Bozeman, Montana.
The growing trends of modular construction and automation—technology that some of our current residential projects are utilizing—is one piece of this puzzle.
