What is a Charrette?
A Design Charrette is an intensive, hands-on pre-development workshop that brings people from different disciplines and backgrounds together to explore architectural and development options for a particular area or site.
The “Design by Community” Affordable Housing Design Charrettes Program series began at the 2010 Housing Colorado Now Annual Conference. Housing Colorado and University of Colorado Denver College of Architecture and Planning are continuing to offer this program on an annual basis, serving communities throughout the state.
Many of the projects that have participated in the
Design Charrettes Program have made significant progress in their affordable housing development. Read more about past design charrettes and completed projects.
The Design Charrettes Program provides an opportunity for non-profit housing developers and Housing Authorities to benefit from pro-bono pre-development services for an affordable housing project in your community:
experience was truly like none other. The room was filled with
enthusiasm, knowledge and collaboration for a wonderful cause." - 2019
