So: As a part of the requirements for graduation from my major, Urban and Environmental Policy at Occidental College, we are required to write a policy-relevant thesis/research project. I decided to write about the design of four affordable housing projects in Los Angeles and used Design Quality Indicators from the Center or Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) to discuss the efficacy of the built environment of supportive housing developments.
If I do say so myself, the background section is a straightforward overview of how affordable housing is developed and explains the status of AH in LA- which might be of interest to those who are not coming from the U.S.
The analysis and findings of my research begin on page 28. Another important section I think that is worth reading is the discussion section which begins on page 59.
