ADUs - INCOME SECURITY, HEALTH + CULTURAL CONSERVATION. AARP is partnered with blink!LAB architecture to fund the creation of an ADU Design Catalog. Our two firms are aligned in the belief that ADUs have a role to play in maintaining healthy, livable communities. The Design Catalog is only one of the components in blink!LAB's larger on-going study into the history and formation of our cities as reflections of migration patterns under-pinned by economic (im)mobility. ADUs are interesting to us because they represent the smallest independent housing unit with the greatest latent potential for cultural conservation and economic stability.here> and here>
