Why do the Jetsons remain the high bar of futurist thinking when it comes to the places we live in? Panelists Tom Chi, experience lead at Google X; architect Michelle Kaufmann; Ronald Rael, architect, author and assistant professor at UC Berkeley; and moderator Allison Arieff, contributing columnist to The New York Times and editor of The Urbanist, will discuss how can we expand our ideas about the house of the future to create inspired visions of the 21st century American Dream.

Co-presented by the San Francisco AIA.
