At this AIA Design for the Aging meeting of area architects we’ll view Family Service Agency of San Francisco's video project of seniors discussing their own living environments.
FSA-SF's Senior Services programs provide citywide services and workforce opportunities to help older adults remain in the community and age with dignity, security, and a high quality of life.
Plus, we’ll have a review of LED lighting and applicability to senior environments and exercise/fitness equipment specifically design for seniors.
Note this is not a cohousing-specific event and we are not a sponsor or participant; we're cross-listing it because a key element of successful senior cohousing neighborhoods is member involvement with the design process and understanding how our homes and communities can best support our needs as we grow older, so we can continue to age-in-place, allowing us to age in community.
We've been to some prior meetings and met cohousing members and designers, as well as people interested in the concept.
The meeting is in downtown SF, 1 block from Montgomery BART (assuming it is not on strike), or a short walk from the ferry building.
The American Institute of Architect's San Francisco chapter (AIA-SF) Design for the Aging committee brings together interested parties to foster design innovation and disseminate knowledge necessary to enhance the built environment and quality of life for an aging society. Meetings highlight current trends, various types of senior environments, aging-in-place, supportive services, and innovations.
Serving the Bay Area for more than a century, the American Institute of Architects, San Francisco Chapter (AIA San Francisco), one of the largest of the AIA's nearly 300 chapters, represents more than 2,000 members in San Francisco and Marin County. Headquartered in the historic Hallidie Building—one of the world's first glass-curtain-wall-buildings, designed by Willis Polk and completed in 1917—AIA San Francisco is the Bay Area’s premier destination for architecture and design.
I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
