Today, nuclear families account for 20% of America’s households, while nearly 30% are single adults living alone, a growing phenomenon across all ages and incomes.

A groundswell of action by housing entrepreneurs is beginning to expand our options—making room for new models and design solutions. Looking beyond typical choices and layouts, they are offering alternatives at all levels of the market, from micro-units, tiny houses, and accessory apartments to cohousing, co-living, and beyond.

Making Room: Housing for a Changing America features The Open House—a flexible, 1,000-square-foot home featuring a hyper-efficient layout, movable walls, and multifunctional furniture, allowing the space to meet the needs of a variety of today’s growing but underserved households.

Visit the exhibition with a museum docent and continue the discussion with fellow TTN members and guests at an optional lunch following the tour.
