DESIGN FOR INCLUSION is a research to action initiative jointly launched by Inge Roecker of AIR Studio AND Jessica Chen of Wabi Sabi Planning Lab with the goal to innovate design processes toward new inclusive housing models. It is a research-to-action venture that aims to work with the diverse community and city builders to: 

  • Understand barriers present in the real estate development process to maximize opportunities for inclusive housing;

  • Develop and apply new ways that bring lived-experience closer to the design built processes;

  • Conduct international best practice research;

  • Provide building typological analysis toward integrated design principles and toolkits for inclusive housing;

  • Seek opportunities to prototype innovative inclusive housing models.
