1. Hatter, Michael. The Highly Adaptive House: A Modular System for Better Living.

Degree: M. Arch., Design, Architecture, Art and Planning : Architecture (Master of), 2007, University of Cincinnati

Inherent in the intended durability and physical permanence of contemporary residential architecture is a tendency towards the static, an inability to physically transform, that prevents modern houses from effectively and efficiently adapting to the changing needs of their inhabitants. Homes are designed first to shelter, to protect, to endure, but less commonly to accommodate, collaborate, or nurture. As such, the processes that people employ to adapt their living environments to suit changing needs-reconfiguring and renovating existing spaces, adding new spaces, or changing homes altogether-are often financially costly, time consuming, and psychologically disruptive. Homes that can be reconfigured, reformed, or refashioned according to the specific, changing, ongoing requirements of their owners mitigate these costs. The development of this transformable housing system will broaden the range of options homeowners have for adapting their homes to changing lifestyle needs, easing the process of adaptation, and, in so doing, strengthening the connectedness to home-place and creating a more dynamic, continuously shifting residential landscape. Advisors/Committee Members: McInturff, Michael (Advisor).
