Apartment of the Future
There are many exotic and visionary versions of the apartment of the future out there on the web and in designers modeling applications (cannot use 'on their drawing boards' any longer). The component parts already exist or are near to emerging on the market.
Build a prototype now and follow its users' everyday life to develop some evidence on how to configure and design better versions in the near future.

The American Institute of Architects Design and Health Research Consortium is one place to start. We will contact you soon.
