Where: The Center For Architecture, 536 Laguardia Pl, New York, NY 10012
Come to the Center for Architecture to see a presentation on CHPC’s “Building Envelope” study – and to offer your suggestions on how to solve this conundrum to the Department of City Planning (DCP).
The Building Envelope Conundrum is a fascinating case study looking into the impact of the contextual building envelope rules on residential development. We found that eight out of seventeen recent residential projects were unable to use all of their permitted floor area due to the rules that …Read more

Making Room…in Atlanta
One of the highlights of 2013 - a year jam-packed full of landmark moments for CHPC – has been working with the Georgia Tech School of Architecture in the development of a design + research studio for graduate students entitled 21st Century Housing: Making Room in the Contemporary City.
The studio, headed by Associate Professor and Architect Michael Gamble, challenges student teams to put together full design proposals for mixed residential/commercial developments that incorporate high-performance active and passive energy systems. The brief is already extremely challenging. They have to conduct their own site selection–picking sites that are not only …Read more

CHPC Discusses Three-Quarter Houses
CHPC’s Executive Director, Jerilyn Perine, participated today in the panel discussion following the presentation of Three-Quarter Houses: The View from the Inside at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. This report by Robert Riggs and Tasha Burnett analyzes the role of three-quarter houses in the recovery and reintegration process for people facing substance abuse or who have been recently released from prison. The report also sheds light on the poor conditions in many three-quarter houses and the requirements that operators commonly place on residents to participate in recovery programs.
