In response to a national demand for greater diversity in housing options, government leaders, activists, and policymakers will convene the Build Small Live Large Summit in Portland in November. The mission of the Summit, presented by the Build Small Coalition, is to discuss ways to enable and encourage the development of smaller homes in cities across the U.S., while also addressing the barriers to affordable, livable housing for all members of the community. Early bird pricing for the event closes on Oct. 18.
The Build Small Live Large Summit is a two-day biennial event intended for the full spectrum of housing professionals. At Build Small, participants will share and explore emerging strategies for advancing “missing middle” housing—ADUs, small plexes, co-housing, townhomes—in America’s increasingly unaffordable cities.
