AIA Las Vegas May Membership Meeting

"Affordable Housing Best Practices"

 

Specific Details TBA

As we move into 2019 and beyond, incoming President Dwayne Eshenbaugh, AIA has developed a theme that will engage our members and benefit our community.  Blueprint for Better: Explorations into Affordable Housing and Homelessness” is the overall theme for AIA Las Vegas Chapter throughout 2019. As we look to identify the specific needs in our own community where the “Blueprint for Better” concept can be applied, we must recognize the need for shelter, and the need to address the long standing issues of affordable housing and homelessness. The Chapter’s “Blueprint for Better” will consist of Exploration into Affordable Housing and Homelessness, with the objective of creating positive change, solving homelessness and leading the way to a better community.

Shelter, along with food and clothing, is one of mankind’s most basic and essential necessities, and the essential purpose of architecture. Yet in a nation of abundance, thousands of our citizens of all ages are without homes or shelter of any kind.  As of January 2018 in Southern Nevada there were 1295 unaccompanied homeless youth, 505 chronic homeless, 106 homeless families with children and 6083 homeless on any given night. This is a problem that can be solved.  Who, other than AIA Architects, is better equipped to address this problem and find solid solutions?  Who, other than you, can make positive change?

Plan to Attend the May Member Meeting on Wednesday, May 15th, 5:30PM
and join the “Blueprint for Better” task force with your fellow AIA members to find the solution.  Members will work together throughout the year in idea sessions, charrettes, focus groups and presentations to find the best solutions. 

Subsequent programs will include
