Booming Boroughs: Redesigning Aging-In-Place in NYC

To follow up on the all-day design charrette BOOMING BOROUGHS: Redesigning Aging-in-Place in NYC that was held at the Center for Architecture on Saturday, May 18, 2013, the five design teams of the AIANY Design for Aging Committee will present the results of their deep dive into the question of providing suitable housing, in accord with the concept of “Designing for a Lifetime”, that will enable our aging New Yorkers to continue to live happily, safely, and independently at home. With the understanding that being part of a community is an essential ingredient to happiness, the teams have addressed the challenges of the current available housing stock to rethink what can be done to allow New Yorkers to thrive in the city with friends and family.
