Module, a Pittsburgh startup developing affordable, adaptable housing solutions, will host a panel discussion and networking session, “Defining the Future of Housing,” at the outdoor plaza at Nova Place, 100 South Commons on the North Side, beginning at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 9.
This event, open to the public, brings together leaders in their fields who will discuss which aspects of housing will be “smart” in 10 years, how much the sharing economy will affect housing and whether houses will really be built like cars.

The panelists include:
- Jenny Fielding, Managing Director, Techstars ioT
- Michael Dickens, Partner, Chief Marketing Officer, IBACOS
- Sandy Albert, Director of Real Estate Acquisitions, Common
