This session invites those who share an interest in multifamily housing to discuss the critical data we have and still need in order to deliver “living” urban housing that contributes to a carbon-free, resilient future and enhances the lives and well-being of people living in urban communities. Multifamily housing is often challenged by a lack of robust data about the building type, scant feedback about the needs of the communities served by a project, and highly variable and unpredictable use patterns. This panel takes a closer look at the data we have and the collection methods we use to better understand construction, operations, and the experience of residents for this complex building type.

This session is approved for the following continuing education credits:
  • 1.25 LFA credits
  • 1.25 AIA LU|HSW credits
