A two month Long program that temporarily activated vacant lots with local artists to link arts and culture into local neighborhoods throughout Long Beach. 

 

Expanding the availability of affordable housing is as important as ever, yet securing the ability to deliver new housing can be difficult in some communities due to austere regulation or unfavorable political climates. As there is growing recognition among affordable housing providers that their investment can be leveraged further for community development, new partners and approaches to design are necessary. City Fabrick is collaborating with a number of affordable housing providers to create identities and communication platforms for new developments in order to procure resources for financing development, secure necessary approvals and ultimately integrates these projects into the surrounding community. These services have included graphic design, constituency engagement and even urban design direction, all to insure that the developments can suitably fit within their already established context.
