Taking Back the Neighborhood
Peter Landon, Landon Bone Baker Architects

Three of Landon Bone Baker’s community-based renovation and infill affordable housing developments will be visited. These projects have supported communities’ organizing and legal efforts to maintain affordable housing under pressures of gentrification: Archer Courts, Chinatown, the renovation of two midrise CHA buildings slated for demolition; and Harold Washington Unity Coop and Rosa Parks, both new construction infill multifamily affordable housing developments of multiple buildings on scattered sites in Chicago’s West Humboldt neighborhood.
