Years later, many low-income home owners hit hardest by the storm were still unable to repair or replace their homes, which spurred the Texas General Land Office to grant $125 million to Houston\u2019s Housing and Community Development Department to implement the second round of the city\u2019s Disaster Recovery Program (DR2). The investment, resulting in 240 new single-family homes and 35 home repairs, provides relief to homeowners who need it while revitalizing six of Houston\u2019s diverse neighborhoods."]]],[1,"blockquote",[[0,[],0,"\u0022The scale of this is very impressive, and the approach monumental in terms of community engagement.\u0022 ~ Jury comment"]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"The collaborative approach to DR2 strengthened the relationship between the city, residents, and design professionals and was envisioned as a way to fuse the architects\u2019 expertise with the insights provided by those directly affected by the storm."]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"The team gathered context from each of the six neighborhoods and created engagement events to receive input from more than 300 residents. A community workshop gathered 70 participants to advance the housing needs of each neighborhood through a series of activities that aimed to set the design contextual and programmatic design preferences for each neighborhood. Later, a focus group session asked 15 residents from each neighborhood to discuss designs with the architects and identify characteristics that would best support their daily lives and family routines. Completed designs were on view during two gallery shows, and 210 participants from all six neighborhoods were invited to explore, comment, and vote on the homes on display. Each of the events generated a report that detailed the residents\u2019 ideas and comments as well as analysis that allowed for the architects to refine their designs."]]],[1,"blockquote",[[0,[],0,"\u0022A great model to use on future projects; you can sense the DNA of the community through it.\u0022 ~ Jury comment"]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"Home sizes range in size from 1,100 square-feet for a two-bedroom home to 2,360 square-feet for a six-bedroom home, and all designs were approved and permitted with the city.
