Just released by the AIA Design for Aging Knowledge Community: Blueprints for Senior Living 07/10 edition
The mission of the AIA Design for Aging Knowledge Community (DFA) is to foster design innovation and disseminate knowledge necessary to enhance the built environment and quality of life for an aging society. This includes relevant research on characteristics, planning, and costs associated with innovative design for aging. In addition, DFA provides outcome data on the value of these design solutions and environments.
For more information about the Design for Aging please contact your local chapter or the Design for Aging Advisory Group. More information can be found on www.aia.org/dfa or www.aiadesignforaging.org.
RBc: We've been a big fan of this group for the insight and creativity they bring to this very special topic. A highly recommended resource worthy of your support.
See our pages on Design for Aging and be sure to read the abstract titled, "Supportive living environments: A first concept of a dwelling designed for older adults with dementia."
