Opening reception for Smart House, Livable Community, Your Future

Where do you want to live when you grow older? For many people the answer is “at home.” This exhibition explores the housing trend of aging in place by developing products and adaptive technologies that allow people to stay in their homes.

Curated by Marilyn Bruin (Housing Studies) and Jodene Riha (graduate student) and made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
