Friedman, Avi


Dr. Avi Friedman, author of The Adaptable House: Designing Homes for Change, says North America's rapidly changing demograhics -- people living longer, more people working from home, fewer having children, adult children returning home -- demand greater flexibility, creativity, and awareness in home design and construction. Dr. Friedman is Director of the Affordable Homes Program at McGill University's School of Architecture.

"It seems," says Dr. Friedman, "that the era of unchangeable homes that accommodate just one lifestyle is drawing to a close, and there exists a clear need for new strategies and products." His book argues that achieving a close fit between the evolving space needs of occupants and their homes ought to be simpler than it is at present. Residences can be designed and constructed to become life-cycle houses where changes can be made as needed.

The Adaptable House, which is packed with floor plans, photos and charts, is available at Canadian bookstores.Friedman, Avi is the author of 'Adaptable House Designing Homes for Change' with ISBN 9780071377461 and ISBN 0071377468.
