Learn about new standards in housing design that enable people to stay in their homes through various life stages, as imagined by architects and designers from the Home Today/Home Tomorrow design challenge. Architect and juror, Matthias Hollwich, founding partner of New York-based architecture firm Hollwich Kushner and author of New Aging, shares his research into housing models, aging, and longevity. Fellow juror Dan Soliman, AARP Foundation, discusses the design challenge, the designs that were incorporated into an actual home, and lessons learned that can improve thriving in place. Following the event, Hollwich signs copies of his book, which is available in the Museum Shop.

This program complements the exhibition Making Room: Housing for a Changing America, which is open before the program and generously supported by the AARP Foundation.
