Let's Share, Let's Huddle, Let's Breath provides a hopeful solution to the human right of access to affordable housing in an denser, more environmental dire outlook for NYC. In the past, NYC has lead by demanding better health and programmatic housing conditions through policies arching back to the Tenement House Act of 1867. Today, we proposed a comprehensive review of habitable and shared spaces through a careful consideration of applicable codes and new co-habitation realities. In a building adhering to the OneNYC Green 80 X 50 challenge, we increase environmental exposure to double the access to "light and air" and, in so doing, we engender a new productive social space to foster an inclusive, invested, community.
