ArchiTalks @ Articulture: The Affordable, Hoping To Be Affordable, and The (Completely) Unaffordable
October 6 program features Forge Craft Architecture + Design
 The Affordable, Hoping to be Affordable, and (Completely) Unaffordable will be presented by Scott Ginder, AIA, and Rommel Sulit of Forge Craft Architecture + Design. Their work covers a wide range of project types: affordable housing and multi-family/mixed-use; custom and spec homes; modular/emerging construction technologies; and commercial projects. This lecture highlights their push to make housing affordable to all and reach a high level of design while recognizing that some work is affordable to a limited client base.
