The Future of Housing
The Future of Housing
The Future of Housing
Stephen Lee

This presentation was given as part of the American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical, and Petroleum Engineers (AIME) keynote session held on Wednesday, March 12 at the TMS 2008 Annual Meeting & Exhibition in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Traditional American methods of homebuilding are not adequately responding to the need for flexible, affordable, energy effective and resource efficient homes. This presentation takes a fresh look at the housing delivery process in response to global and regional change. From climate change to power deregulation and suburban sprawl to the rapid proliferation of information technology, change is occurring at a more rapid pace than at any other time in our history. Yet the housing industry is a fragmented, multi-headed beast in which change is slow to occur if at all.

This presentation speaks directly to our future housing needs and illustrates potential design, technology and construction process solutions using the 2007 Carnegie Mellon Solar Decathlon house as a case study.

The recording is made possible through support from AIME.<Click here to download the introduction of this keynote session given by Dan Thoma, 2008 AIME President.
