How we use and the options that define living space have evolved over time and will likely continue to change in the future. The Dwelling 2.0 initiative focuses on the outside forces – demographics, technology, life-style preferences – that will influence the meaning of and use of dwellings, including detached single-family homes condos or newer options such as tiny homes.
