The National Mall will again transform into a hub of innovation and creativity as the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) brings the Innovative Housing Showcase back for its fourth year, from June 7 to June 9, 2024.

SBCA and NFC framed a two-story house on the National Mall in less than 12 hours as a demonstration exhibit in the 2023 Innovative Housing Showcase.

The Showcase is a public event to raise awareness of innovative and affordable housing designs and technologies that have the potential to increase housing supply, lower the cost of construction, increase energy efficiency and resilience, and reduce housing expenses for owners and renters. More than 4,000 people, including policymakers, housing industry representatives, media, and the public, are expected to attend. Interactive exhibits will include full-sized prototype homes and innovative building technologies that address affordability, resilience, and the future of housing.

“The Innovative Housing Showcase is a testament to our nation's unwavering commitment to moving the housing sector forward,” said HUD Secretary Marcia L. Fudge. “The future of housing is innovative. The Showcase provides a unique opportunity to explore technologies that can make housing more affordable and more resilient, while bringing industry leaders and the public together on creative solutions to the challenges facing our communities.”

“HUD and its Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R) have supported innovation in housing and building technologies since the beginning, and these investments have contributed to changes in building codes, improvements in industry practice, and most importantly, lower housing costs for American families,” said Solomon Greene, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy Development and Research. “The Showcase continues that tradition, featuring the latest technologies and designs that can help meet the nation’s growing housing affordability and climate resilience needs.”

HUD recently published a Notice in the Federal Register, seeking exhibitors to showcase innovations for the Innovative Housing Showcase. The deadline for proposals is March 29, 2024. HUD will announce exhibitors and more details on programming related to the Showcase in May 2024.
