Home Inc.Ubator

Student lead: Sophie Nahrmann

Student major: Architecture

The availability of affordable housing is failing to meet demand in Pittsburgh, Pa. Recent development activity has displaced many under-represented populations and exacerbated trust issues within communities. The Home Inc.Ubator will empower residents as agents in collaborating on the design of their own affordable housing.

The incubator is a portable residential housing module prototype equipped with reality computing and advanced virtual reality.

Affordable homeownership opportunities will allow more of the population to build equity and increase their ability to build generational wealth.
