Go Stanley! Go Helmut!

Nonprofit housing.

Here’s that story I told you was coming from the New York Times.

Money graf:

“Chicago has the most vibrant nonprofit housing community in the country,” said Henry G. Cisneros, the former housing secretary during the Clinton administration and a prominent advocate of affordable housing. “If you want to talk about a city with a comprehensive approach to housing and ending homelessness, Chicago kind of sets the pace right now.”

The projects also showcase what is turning into another tradition in the city, that of sustainable, or green, design.

The Right Angle. We’re always ahead of the curve.

Look for Stanley Tigerman and Helmut Jahn

in the New York Times early in November.
For a story on sustainable architecture.

Of course, we wrote about Helmut’s ‘green’ Chicago social housing project, way back in July. And in August.

I hope the NYT covers the fine show at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, Sustainable Architecture in Chicago.
