Design for Aging Review 10: Insights and Innovations: The State of Senior Housing (Data Mining Findings)
The second consecutive design competition analysis performed by the Perkins Eastman Research Collaborative, the DFAR10 Insights Study evaluated over 90 leading-edge senior living projects from around the country, as well as several international projects. The study identified commonalities that reflect larger-scale trends and unique features that challenge those trends.
The purpose of the DFAR10 Insights Study is to provide a more comprehensive look at statistics, patterns, and innovations impacting the senior living industry and design community; and share the findings with architects and providers who want to know the current state of practice.
The mission of the AIA Design for Aging Knowledge Community (DFA) is to foster design innovation and disseminate knowledge necessary to enhance the built environment and quality of life for an aging society.
