“With cities worldwide growing dramatically, it is now more critical than ever for architects and designers to collaborate on understanding and finding a solution to the global housing crisis,” stated USC Architecture’s Dean Curry. “That is why USC Architecture is honored to host this special Design Miami/ panel on American history and home examining the abstract juxtaposition between the two. Our goal with this conversation is to spark new ideas for seamlessly organizing cities that will not only reflect the needs of its growing inhabitants but also address the rapidly advancing issues of affordability, sustainability and diversity.”
