Novem Mason Symposium
University of North Carolina at Greensboro
Peacehaven is a collaborator for this year's UNCG design symposium about healthy built environments. The event will draw upon the expertise of local and regional thought leaders in housing, architecture, design, preservation, and development. Topics include affordable housing, housing the homeless, accessory dwelling units, tiny houses, fair housing, energy efficiency, and public interest design.
There are additional opportunities for off-campus engagement for those who prefer to get their hands dirty through community-based working groups. Teams of students, faculty, and community volunteers will work on a handful of projects, including a tiny house for Tiny Houses Greensboro, accessory dwelling unit designs for College Hill, scale models of tiny houses for those experiencing homelessness, a re-design of the Gate City Blvd. Corridor, a garden shed for Peacehaven Community Farm, an adult sensory gymnasium design charrette, and an outdoor space for teens experiencing homelessness.
