We have developed a series of accessory dwelling units (ADUs) that utilize the RAPIDO CORE as a base building and explore different outdoor design layouts that allow for adaptation and flexibility of placement in multiple lot configurations.
[bc] has worked with the Texas Organizing Project (TOP) to create resources for individuals to learn about specific issues including flooding, the disaster recovery process, housing and gentrification. We hope that these "Modules" will help people provide informed feedback at community meetings, support community organizing efforts, and empower them to have engaged conversations with local officials and experts.
In 2008, Hurricane Dolly made landfall in Texas’ Lower Rio Grande Valley causing widespread flooding and sustained winds of over 120mph. The Texas Natural Disaster Housing Reconstruction Committee assembled a plan to design a statewide rapidly deployable replacement housing system for victims of federally declared natural disasters. RAPIDO is [bc]'s response to the state’s initiative, addressing issues of social equity, rapid deployment, and constructability.
A Data Driven Decision-Making (D3) report completed by [bc] for AVANCE-Dallas.

This report draws from a number of national, state, and local data to identify and contextualize issues affecting AVANCE-Dallas’ strategic decision-making.
Neighborhood Stories is a [bc] initiative to strengthen awareness of the neighborhood in our city, celebrate the diverse places that give it character and texture, and create a platform for active dialogue about its history and future.
