Does America need a new vision of the ideal home? In episode four of “Design Now” podcast, we discuss the limitations of the single-family home as a model for the future of housing, and meet people who recognize the fundamental role of residential design in creating a more equitable and climate-resilient future.
Among the issues on the table are the legacy of urban zoning, historic disparities in homeownership, and the financial systems that shaped residential neighborhoods. Looking to the future, we discuss multigenerational living and the changing shape of the family unit, and look to Singapore for inspiration.
