Project Description
I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Tatiana on her thesis project that explored planning and design strategies that create an inclusive environment for the elderly-- designing community that integrates various generations for mutual support-- a community for all ages. The aim of Tatiana's research was to define design strategies as tools for creating a community for old and young generations in the U.S, and apply them through the development of a conceptual project. Seven imperative guidelines were developed based on a literature review and analysis of the best design practices of multigenerational communities in the U.S and Europe. When a community becomes a positive intervention-- this is the future for healthcare and senior living. Congratulations Tatiana!
