Community plays a crucial role in shaping how we live and if we thrive. As our world continues to urbanize, densify, and intensify, community is more critical than ever. Drawn from more than three decades’ experience designing affordable multifamily housing, these elegant, economical, and human-centric strategies support a high quality of living for residents and neighbors alike. The "9 Ways to Build Community with Urban Housing" range from the large-scale “Reweave the Urban Fabric”—which focuses on maximizing adjacencies and reconnecting street grids—to the intimate “Get Personal”—which builds in opportunities for self-expression. These flexible, accessible, and complementary design strategies dignify and uplift residents, improve wellness and stability, and support people to forge key bonds. Illustrated by examples from dozens of built projects and long-time collaborations with developers, this talk shares a wide range of successful applications of these community-oriented principles.

The workplace is not what it used to be People are living longer and staying in the workforce longer making this the first time in history that four generations are looking at each other across the same conference table. Differences in generational values vary greatly on everything from dress codes to work ethic. Productivity, culture and growth are being negatively affected by poorly handled generational assumptions. Then there’s the problem of obtaining and retaining multi-generational talent. The potential for collision, conflict and confusion between the generations has never been greater. Your challenge is NOT just figuring out how to put up with each other, but how to uncover and incorporate what motivates each generation to do what’s best for the organization to achieve financial success, personal growth and increased moral.
Because generations are in a constant state of flux, what worked last year does not work today. What seemed like a perfect solution yesterday is the source of tomorrow’s problem. Learn from Meagan Johnson what you can do now to make the most of each generation in your workplace
