San Francisco’s public housing developments have long been the victim of neglected maintenance, a lack of supportive services and flaws in design. However, recent innovative steps to revitalize these developments have proven highly successful and offer lessons for architects and designers to learn from as they work on public housing projects around the country. Come examine the design strategies that contribute to safety, social cohesion and family well-being while building and supporting a healthy community.
