News feature: Are architects doing enough to tackle dementia?

Comment

It's not the architects that are not doing enough, in fact designing physical environments for people with dementia is an area where architects can offer real expertise and improve quality of life. I've been writing, ( Hard Architecture and Human Scale: Designing for Dementia); lecturing ( Salk Institute AIA, RIAS MIT IIT ) and harping on about this (almost everywhere) for 24 years. Until the recent advances in medicine, studies mainly from Australia and USA clearly indicated that the physical design, of homes and other care environments for example slowed the progression of dementia. Think of that architects, empirical proof that really good design matters.
