Social Justice and Sustainable Architecture

Sustainable design ultimately is meant to drive social change and emulate social justice.

Here in our own backyard, by the Santa Monica Freeway, stand the New Carver Apartments.

It is a welcome change to see social housing dedicated to the most underprivileged among us and to have it designed in a sustainable and visually soothing manner.

Los Angeles’ New Carver Apartments are situated in a 97 unit 57,000 square feet building that will provide housing to formerly homeless elderly and disabled residents.

The apartment building was designed by Michael Maltzan architects for the Skid Row Housing Trust.
