In early 2020, in collaboration with thought leaders and practitioners from a range of disciplines, BIG began exploring new directions focused on discovering and developing transformative approaches to designing, building, and inhabiting homes.
Grounded in inclusivity, community engagement and collaboration, we are delving into possibilities at different scales - from smaller homes known as accessory dwelling units to whole neighborhoods. We believe that ADUs and regenerative neighborhood development may be key nodes to achieving major progress in health and well-being at the personal, community and bioregional realms.
This new direction isn't about creating a generic menu of design or policy choices that could be layered onto any neighborhood. It's about bringing forth new ideas. We encourage neighborhood residents, community groups, city official, developers, and others to join us in this process.
These free events bring together a variety of experts to engage in lively conversation about the potential for accerssory dwelling units and neighborhood-level regenerative development to help solve some of our most pressing social and environmental problems.
Three thought leaders in the Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) space share how they are catalyzing new markets for construction and building materials. Watch >>
