|Design Competition - An Affordable Seniors Housing|
|Wednesday, 18 February 2009 08:12|
This competition aims at showcasing the ideas and/or concepts of innovative seniors housing design at the ASHRA Seniors Housing Needs Conference , May 2009 in Halifax, Canada. This design competition will follow the guidelines of the RAIC and is a Non-endorsed design competition of open ideas.
The organizers are looking for design ideas/concepts that embrace the following best practices and think about what can be added beyond them.
The designed environment should support the desires of people to age in the familiar neighborhoods in which they have spent their lives. We need to find ways to nurture people’s sense of being part a larger “community” with a sense of shared identity and mutual support. Future senior housing should be able to flex between assisted living and independent living to avoid unnecessary relocation.
