On Thursday, October 22, Parsons will host a reception celebrating the publication of Growing Urban Habitats: Seeking a New Housing Development Model, co-authored by Bill Morrish, dean of the School of Constructed Environments.
The book documents and expands on the international design competition Urban Habitats, organized in 2005 by Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville and the Charlottesville Community Design Center. A how-to guide and source book, Growing Urban Habitats draws from case studies selected from Urban Habitats submissions and contemporary housing projects in the United States.
The reception will take place from 6:00–8:00 p.m. in the Anna-Maria and Steven Kellen Auditorium, Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, 66 Fifth Avenue, Ground Floor. Admission is free and no tickets or reservations are required. For more information, please call 212.229.5353 or visit www.newschool.edu/events .
