Jim Stockard: Housing, cohousing and citizenship

A is for Architecture

In Episode 21 of A is for Architecture, I speak with Jim Stockard, Lecturer in Urban Planning and Design at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. Jim had a long career as a principal with the Cambridge-based Stockard & Engler & Brigham, as well as serving as an housing advisor to the US government’s Department of Public and Assisted Housing, before joining the GSD. Among other things, Jim curated the Loeb Fellowship for sixteen years. We speak about some ideas from the lecture he gave at the end of his tenure of that - Affordable Housing: It's Just (A) Right, as well as a short piece he wrote for the TEDx blog, Why affordable housing needs to be a right, not a privilege. Enjoy! aisforarchitecture.org ++++++++++++++ Music credits: Bruno Gillick.
