The 2020 edition of the Innovation in Affordable Housing Student Design and Planning Competition, hosted by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, recently selected the proposal by Yale University students as the winning entry.
The brief asked to design a new mixed-use development for mixed-income residents on a site in Santa Fe, New Mexico, identified by the Santa Fe County Housing Authority.
Yale's team included students Helen Farley (M.Arch ‘20), Kelley Johnson (M.Arch '20), Eva Leung (MBA '21), and Jackson Lindsay (M.Arch '20).
"The proposal seeks to connect to the surrounding area and Santa Fe at large and promote resilient communities through paying homage to the vernacular Pueblos," explains Yale's proposal description, "bringing together residents through communal spaces at a variety of scales, passive environmental systems, and a lease to limited equity co-operative model."
