The National Building Museum has earned a reputation in recent years for presenting some fun yet thought-provoking displays like the Hive exhibit of paper tubes and the Beach exhibit of thousands of plastic balls.

Those summer-fun installations have given way to Making Room: Housing for a Changing America, an exhibit that highlights innovative solutions for meeting housing needs.

The exhibit, organized with theCitizens Housing & Planning Counciland presented in partnership withResource Furnitureand Clei, looks at how American households have changed and how housing can adapt to those changes.
