CES Units: 1.5 LU (Applying)

The creation of affordable housing–of various kinds– is one of Los Angeles’ most pressing issues. Yet affordable housing remains one of the most complex types of housing for architects for a variety of reasons. In this webinar, Mark Oberholzer of KTGY and Daniel Nay of GGA+ Architects will walk participants through recent work, including projects built with conventional as well as modular technologies. Each project presents an interesting window into the world of affordable housing, and will illustrate both challenges common across many affordable projects, as well as specific challenges and solutions that are individual to each project.


Mark Oberholzer, Associate Principal, KTGY
Over the last five years, Mark has been at the forefront of KTGY’s expertise in innovative construction techniques – harnessing the design possibilities of modular construction, bearing steel stud systems and heavy timber. Mark sees construction technology as another part of the context of design, bringing a conviction that collaboration, imagination, hard work and a sense of humor are the best tools to reaching the goal of better design.


Daniel Nay, Job Captain, GGA+ Architects
Daniel Nay is a talented designer and project manager with more than 10 years of experience in the profession. Engaging both his strong communication skills and technical expertise, Daniel effectively collaborates with multi-disciplinary teams to bring complex, multi-family projects to life. With a focus on affordable housing in the Los Angeles metropolitan region, and often within dense urban neighborhoods, he has deep understanding of local jurisdictional entitlement and agency permitting processes, as well as nuances of his clients’ service models, facility program, and unit mix design. Daniel possesses an innovative management style, and has been a mentor for many developing interns and designers.

Learning Objectives:
+ Gain insights into critical aspects of the design of affordable housing.
+ Understand current aspects of complying with a variety of local AHJs.
+ Discover opportunites and challenges of designing with alternate construction technologies.
+ Explore how the program specifics of affordable housing drive aspects of the design.
