In our final episode of our 3-part series on affordable and essential housing, we speak with architect Nancy Bastian who specializes in affordable housing projects in Philadelphia. Whether she is working on senior housing or buildings for families, her goal is to make “people feel like a million bucks” when they reside in a unit she has designed. “Constraints are awesome”, according to Nancy; low budget, complex approval processes and special needs of tenants require creativity and beauty which makes this work especially fun and rewarding.
