‘Making Room: Housing for a Changing America’

November 18, 2017 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
National Building Museum
401 F Street NW

Housing demands in America have shifted dramatically in the last 50 years. Nuclear families make up just 20% of America’s housing community today, compared to 40% in 1970. Nearly 30% of those looking for homes are single adults, a demand that has not yet been met by supply. The National Building Museum’s exhibit will explore how housing innovators are attempting to handle this development, showcasing new models and designs along the way. Making Room will also feature The Open House, a 1,000-square-foot home designed by architect Pierluigi Colombo that is hyper-efficient and wholly adaptable.
