DENSE-CITY: Housing for Quality of Life and Social Capital is an exhibition of projects by Los Angeles architecture studio Brooks + Scarpa exploring urban development, cultural equity, and access to public space. Housing supply has been slow to meet the demands of the market or respond to the needs of increasingly varied living conditions. The exhibition features models, plans, visualizations, and drawings from two decades of projects addressing sustainable compact housing development and creation of affordable, vibrant, healthy communities through advocacy, innovationm and building. Brooks + Scarpa are recipients of the 2019 Los Angeles County Housing Innovation Challenge in partnership with 18th Street program Community Corporation of Santa Monica and Plant Prefab to build Nest, an innovative long-term housing solution for unsheltered citizens.

In conjunction with the exhibition, 18th Street will invite the architects to participate in ongoing dialogue with local and international resident artists, Santa Monica city planning officials, visiting architects and LA-based artists, architects, and planners.

ACCESSIBILITY: Our gallery and event spaces are fully accessible, with ground level entrances with no steps. Upon requests for assistance, we will make programmatic aspects of our projects available in accessible alternative formats. You can email requests or questions at
