E04 – AIA Design for Aging Fellows: Senior Living Design Research

In late 2018, the AIA Design for Aging Knowledge Community awarded research fellowships to three recipients, two graduate students and one professor. The intent of these fellowships is to engage a younger generation and to promote rigorous, academic research in design for seniors. The goal is that this research can be readily applied to senior living design projects. Come hear each fellow present their exciting research process, findings, and design implications. Topics include intergenerational communities, regenerative design for the elderly post disaster, and photo diaries of residents in assisted living to understand inhibitors and facilitators of social interaction.
