Architizer is happy to announce a partnership with the University of Pennsylvania for the New Aging Award 2010.
The New Aging Award 2010 is a search for progressive architectural designs (realized or conceptual) for the elderly. With a concern that banal architecture has become a barrier exacerbating physical limitations, social isolation, and dependency, the New Aging Award is looking for designs that break these trends and offers a design quality that enables the elderly to lead a life of dignity.
Any architectural project designed for, or including, a single person or a group of people who are 55 and older is eligible. The designs may range from a private house to an assisted living facility, nursing home, or continuing care retirement facility. Submissions may include the work of firms, architects, designers, students, and teams.
