Students win national competition

A team of Yale students has won first place in the 2020 Innovation in Affordable Housing Student Design and Planning Competition hosted by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. Helen Farley ’20MArch, Kelley Johnson ’20MArch, Eva Leung ’21MBA, and Jackson Lindsay ’20MArch designed a mixed-use and mixed-income community in Santa Fe, New Mexico, focusing on young families, particularly women and children. Their proposal seeks to connect the development to the surrounding area and to Santa Fe at large, and promote resilient communities by paying homage to the vernacular Pueblos, bringing together residents through communal spaces at a variety of scales, passive environmental systems, and a lease-to-limited-equity cooperative model.
