Description:  Relocatable modular units. Stacked townhomes. Fee-simple row houses. Innovative construction techniques and tenure arrangements.

As an architect, planner and developer, for many years Michael Geller has been advocating creative new ideas to address Metro Vancouver’s ever-growing affordability crisis.

In previous 2015 and 2016 SFU lectures (12 Affordable Housing Ideas and 12 More Affordable Housing Ideas) he presented ideas based on his travels throughout the world.

This talk assesses the implementation of recent initiatives and how the region can better address its need for more affordable housing choices.

It will be of special interest to municipal officials and politicians, who along with architects, planners, home builders and developers may have the most important role to play in the coming years. Please join us for what should be a very informative and entertaining evening.

Lecturer:  Michael Geller is an architect, planner, real estate consultant and property developer with four decades' experience in the public, private and institutional sectors. He serves on the Adjunct Faculty of the SFU Centre for Sustainable Community Development and writes a bi-weekly civic affairs column in the Vancouver Courier. A past-president of the Urban Development Institute, he travels extensively and writes a blog at gellersworldtravel.blogspot.com
