Challenging architects and designers to create new standards in housing design to enable people to stay in their homes as they travel through various life stages, AARP, AARP Foundation, Home Matters, and Wells Fargo have come together to present the Re-defining Home: Home Today, Home Tomorrow competition. The goal of the design challenge is to generate universal design solutions and build an attractive, adaptable and affordable home of the future that speaks to and showcases livability, by promoting both aesthetically- and functionally-appealing designs for better living. Participants are asked to re-imagine Home as a place that changes with people’s evolving needs from entering the workforce, getting married, having a family, sending kids to college, becoming a grandparent, following personal passions with new careers and hobbies, to considering retirement.
In addition to the monetary awards for the top three juried winning entries, the first place, winning design will be incorporated into a real-life home and publicly unveiled to provide an experiential learning opportunity for the general public. The Home will then be offered to a deserving family.
