’Homes For People With AIDS: A Study Project on Infill Housing in New York’ is a collaboration between Gustavo Bonevardi and Lee Ledbetter (architectural designers), Linda Baldwin (urban planner), Morgan Hare (principal of a construction management-design firm) and Joe Lay (clinical psychologist).

This project was initially conceived for Vacant Lots, a study project on infill housing in New York sponsored by the Architectural League of New York City’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development. The project was exhibited and subsequently presented publicly in Novemer 1987. ‘Homes for People with AIDS’ has also been included in ‘Reweaving the Urban Fabric: International Approaches to Infill Housing’, sponsored by the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York Landmarks Conservancy at the Paine-Weber Gallery in March 1988.
