Symbium is Democratizing Planning at HousingX 2022

The Future of Planning

Symbium’s Computational Law

Symbium Logo

Rules and regulations in planning are tedious to read and can be even harder to understand. From residents to developers, the challenges in translating these regulations and ordinances into scalable action to build housing are numerous. Out in California, the founders of Symbium have democratized and automated understanding the complexities of planning regulations into a free, transformative resource for the entire state of California.

In 2020 they were the winner of the Ivory Prize in Housing Affordability and since then have continued to expand their work, helping to make the planning process easier and streamlined. Their portal is currently being utilized in cities like San Jose to expand housing supply.

Symbium’s CTO and co-founder Abhijeet Mohapatra will join HousingX virtually on May 25th at 1:15pm for a conversation with HousingForward board chair Vaughn Poller and associate director of the Virginia Center for Housing Research, Mel Jones.
