Hearing from the People

Hearing from the People: Lessons at the intersection of sustainability and social justice – American Institute of Architects Seattle’s  Fall ’09 “Forum” article by Cedar River Group partner Tom Byers and Trang Tu of Trang D. Tu Consulting describes our work in helping to develop “green” housing options for seasonal farm workers. Led by the Seattle Archdiocesan Housing Authority and Mithun Architects, the project team developed the designs based on discussions with farm worker advocates and growers about what their current needs are for housing. The team will further refine the designs based on the advice of farm workers and growers who will use the units during the Spring 2010 growing season.
