Immigration and Multi-generational Home Building 

This project looks at the intersection between immigration and national, regional, and local trends in multi-generational home building. The research explores the influence of immigration on trends in multi-generational home development by comparing national trends in home building industry and those for home designed specifically for immigrants. It also looks at the changing form of the single-family home and how it is being shaped by these larger forces to accommodate more diverse populations and lifestyles. The research is intended to provide evidence of how immigration is impacting the changing suburban landscape and how the home builders might better respond to the needs and desires of an increasingly diversity suburban American public.
