An Extended Family: Jamie Jacobs invents the “family room”
Architecture is particularly sensitive to social change, particularly when that change affects foundational norms and myths of society. Shifting ideas of the family and its function as a basic social unit can be read through architecture of many scales, from the home to the city. An Extended Family live online lecture series presents pairs of historical case studies, moments of key changes in ideas of “the family,” and emerging understandings and new contemporary typologies of families, and their influence on and expression in architecture today.

Jamie Jacobs is central region director for Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga, and the author of *Detached America: Building Houses in Postwar Suburbia* (2015).
