Welcome Home: Universal Design, Sustainable Design, and Baby Boomers.

Michael Berens, director of Research and Knowledge Resources for the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) will deliver a presentation on design for Baby Boomers, titled Welcome Home: Universal Design, Sustainable Design, and Baby Boomers.

The session will present the results of a nationwide survey to prioritize the features of home design important to prospective buyers within the baby boom generation.

The survey outcomes are to be used as the programmatic basis for studios for architectural, planning, interior, and industrial design students and professionals to design dwellings within an intergenerational neighborhood.
