Americans are changing—and so are our housing needs. Housing for a Changing Nation explores how developments in American society and experience, including shifts in demographics, the economy and the environment, are forcing us to reexamine the concept of house and home.

Learn how local architects are reimagining the notions of home and community at a moment when much of our existing late 19th- and 20th-century housing stock has become outdated.

Everyone needs a home. Join us in exploring how new housing forms and reuse concepts can accommodate the many different ways Chicagoans—and Americans—are adapting and evolving over the course of their lives.

Housing for a Changing Nation features work and designs from Brooks + Scarpa, Canopy / architecture + design, LLC.,  Landon Bone Baker Architects, and UrbanLab.

This exhibit is made possible by AARP Illinois and the AARP Foundation.
