The exhibition Low Rise High Density examined a housing type celebrated in the 1960s and ‘70s, and what it means in the United States today. Co-sponsored by the Institute for Public Architecture, and presented at the Center for Architecture, Low Rise High Density presented architectural drawings, photographs, and oral histories with project architects, tracing the typology over the last 50 years.

Living Room explored the housing and related services created by Housing Works for homeless individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS. The installation was grounded in a full-scale blueprint for one supportive-housing unit in the Keith D. Cylar House, the first of Housing Works' many housing projects throughout New York's five boroughs.Designed for Housing Works: Design on a Dime at the Metropolitan Pavilion.

"Total Reset" was a yearlong program series of the Institute for Public Architecture, created in response to New York Mayor de Blasio’s “total reset” for housing. A "Total Reset" exhibition was on view in the Sugar Hill Apartments, as part of the No Longer Empty's "If You Build It." Inaugural IPA Fellows developed four research and design proposals for public and below-market housing in New York.
"Total Reset," gained major coverage in the New York Times is reflected in proposed NYC zoning text.

Designed in collaboration with Matthew Voss and critic Michael Bell
This project integrates housing into a new commuter train station and an existing baseball stadium in Bridgeport, Connecticut. In inserting private housing into public space, the design sets up a series of public-private negotiations.
To increase movement between currently disconnected neighborhoods, we relocated Bridgeport’s train station to align with the baseball stadium, introduced a curving road parallel to the existing stadium access route, and contained our housing and retail within this zone. Through compression, we intensified interactions between commuters, residents, shoppers, and sports fans.
