According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are about 5.1 million multigenerational households in the United States. This is not a new phenomenon. But that number is likely to grow significantly in the future, due to a shrinking middle class, more young people living at home longer, retiring Baby Boomers who want to age in place, and longer life expectancies. The multigenerational home is clearly a housing type in serious need of rethinking, so we approached four design firms and asked them to create their vision for the twenty-first-century multigenerational home. —Martin C.
