This report includes a section on accessory dwelling units as a housing option that responds to changing demographics. This section lists synonymous terms, highlights the reasons for choosing to live in or build and ADU, and profiles specific ADU projects.
This report discusses the need for a diversity of housing options to cope with changing demographics. It introduces the problem, describes creative solutions through case studies, and concludes with a rendering of a custom-designed building, “The Open House,” which is flexible enough to accommodate three different household living arrangements at 1,000 square feet. The report was adapted from an exhibition of the same name at the National Building Museum.
