On Friday, May 18, 2018, from 12:30 – 1:45 PM, at the Congress for the New Urbanism's CNU 26. Savannah, RAMSA Associates Robert Cannavino and Mark Santrach will present their research on early 20th-century social housing in Amsterdam as part of the CNU's Open Innovation series. Informed by travel to Amsterdam, Mr. Cannavino and Mr. Santrach will discuss how the Housing Act of 1901 encouraged the development of entire neighborhoods to accommodate the increasing population of the city in the intra-war era. Their presentation on the political, urban, and architectural solutions will reveal how a comprehensive and coordinated response created desirable neighborhoods that are still cherished today.

The annual Congress brings together 1400+ attendees focused on positive place-making to hear from speakers, participate in workshops, collaborate on projects, and interact with leaders from a diverse range of fields while connecting with the built environment and community of the host city or region.
