Today our life expectancy is expected to exceed 113+ years creating families that might span four generations. Parents move in with grown children as they retire to be closer to family or to support assisting with the daily activities of grandchildren, while college graduates leave home to start their professional careers. COVID created a world-wide crisis overnight forcing governments and businesses to come to a screeching halt if they were not essential workers. People worldwide were forced to isolate and adapt to a new environment that made home now the office, the gym, the classroom, the playground or the hair salon, etc. Multi-generational housing now had a new definition overnight and has become the top priority for housing. So, how does a designer today create a livable environment that might accommodate three or four generations under one roof? How are universal, adaptable, accessible, visitable and livable principles applied in creating a multigenerational environment?

Course Objectives:

- To understand universal, accessible, visitable and livable design principles
- Learn to identify the client’s short and long term needs
- How to design a livable space that is functional
- Identify security, ease of use, comfort and safety as features
