There are certain groups of people in our society that are deemed unfit to live on their own without assistance. This might be people with limited mobility, veterans with crippling PTSD, or the growing elderly population. For many of these people, it’s not that they cannot live on their own, but that current houses are not designed to accommodate their level of ability.
In this project, we are looking to design a small, affordable structure or system that can help people living with disability live with more autonomy.
At this stage, we are exploring the problems and possibilities. As the project progresses, more structure will be added to this brief. We recognize that there is not a single solution for all people or abilities, so explore those that you have experience with or that speak to you the most.
