Abstract

The reality of any situation is that things don’t always go as planned. We need to adapt and change. We graduate college but can’t afford the homes we expected, so we settle for what we can get even though it may not really suit us. We get new jobs that require us to move somewhere else. We start our families, and our current homes no longer meet our needs, and we are forced to sell and move. We constantly go through this process of trying to meet our ever-changing needs. The closer we get to graduation, the more I have been forced to think about my future and trying to find a place I can call home. Through this process, I have learned that most traditional homes don’t offer the long-term adaptability that young adults need for the future.

Over the years, tiny homes have grown in popularity. This typology is one that I think has the potential to become a solution for young adults trying to navigate the changes they will face. In my thesis project, I want to propose further investigation into the notion of small style dwellings and their ability to be more affordable than typical options while allowing lifestyle flexibility through mobility and adaptability aspects by proposing a better designed system of assembly and living.
