New Ageing Award 2010

  • Comment


The University of Pennsylvania has launched the New Ageing Award 2010, identifying progressive architecture for the elderly, whether realised or conceptual

Banal and indifferent architecture can become a barrier as people age, exacerbating physical limitations, and paradoxically increasing both social isolation and dependency.

The New Ageing Award will recognize designs that enable the aging and elderly to lead a life of dignity.

There will be two award categories, one for visionary and one for realized projects, and six honorable mentions.

The winners will be included in a book on New Ageing to be published in conjunction with the New Ageing Conference at the University of Pennsylvania on October 1st and 2nd, 2010.

All winners and honorable mentions will be recognized at the conference and will receive two free tickets to the conference.
