Learn how the Home Today/Home Tomorrow competition challenged architects and designers to create new standards in housing design so people can stay in their home as they travel through various life stages. Jurors Matthias Hollwich, founding partner of New York-based architecture firm Hollwich Kushner Architects and author of New Aging, and Dan Soliman, director, AARP Foundation, share their experiences. Following the event, Hollwich signs copies of his book.
