Design for Aging International Case Studies of Building and Program by Jeffrey W. Anderzhon, David Hughes, Monique Wijnties, Emi Kiyota

Architecture/Interior Design An in-depth look at the most innovative aged care facilities today With the world's population aging at a rapid pace, there is a growing need for new ways to provide residential care for older people. Design for Aging explores some of the most successful examples of elderly housing today, focusing on integrating architectural considerations within an unwavering people-driven approach. Written by an international team of experts in aged care design, the book brings together twenty-six case studies from around the world, including Australia, Denmark, England, Japan, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United States. The authors describe how each scheme has succeeded in addressing the needs of its residents regardless of wide variations in design, geography, cultural factors, medical needs, capital cost, and other factors. Clear, well-documented information for each facility includes: * Building descriptions and project data, and how the overall design fits within a geographical location * The type of community, including number of residents, ethnicity, and specific conditions such as dementia * How to apply universal design principles in different political, social, and regulatory contexts * How to create a sense of belonging and well-being for residents while building strong connections with the community at large * What makes a facility able to attract and retain high-quality caregivers * Environmental sustainability issues, plus indoor and outdoor spaces Architects and interior designers as well as facility owners and caregivers will find Design for Aging an inspiring and practical guide on how to navigate the many factors involved in creating good designs for aged care environments.


Written by an international team of expert authors. Design for Aging takes a comprehensive look at more than 25 case studies of the best international cotemporary examples of design for aging environments. (ASID Icon, Spring 2012)
