Title: Growing & Aging- a new way of connecting generations
Author: Lillegaard, Sara
Abstract: “Growing and Aging: a new way of connecting generations,” is an exploration of a new architectural typology that tries to fill in the generation gap existing between young people and our aging society. When looking at the increase in the number of seniors the U.S. and the world has been facing, questions start to rise as to how to provide quality care for the so called aging society. Studies have shown that socialization is still very important as we grow older, and a sense of connection and belonging is essential to a better quality of life. Another group that would benefit from a greater sense of connection and belonging are troubled youth. Giving youth the opportunity to make a difference and simply communicate better with older adults might be just what they need for a better future. The aim is to create a new sense of community that connects these generations through an exchange of energy, experiences, care, love, and guidance. This project will be a senior center connected to a youth center with residential for both age groups in Duluth, Minnesota.
