On Saturday May 16th, 2015, Imagine Austin and Austin American Institute of Architects designvoice committee partnered to present Walk the Talk – A tour and panel discussion on ‘missing middle’ housing in Austin. The goal was to present an educational and informative program that fostered open dialogue and visual cues on the benefits and opportunities of encouraging a variety of housing types, commonly referred to as ‘missing middle’ housing, in Austin. These housing types include duplexes, tri-plexes, four-plexes and accessory dwelling units.
We’re sharing the presentations here in hopes of continuing to foster that open dialogue and to continue the conversation. This was the first of three events on missing middle, so please keep an eye out for Imagine Austin News for more information. The presentations are in .pdf format, and require Adobe Acrobat to open.
