Quality living in old age is one of the important topics of our time. Intelligent design solutions can push back the limits on housing and care. This volume in the Design Manuals series provides detailed information on designing for the elderly, including general questions of energy management and sustainability, open space, and product design. A large section of examples focuses on building typologies, analysing approximately forty international buildings that offer solutions for multigenerational buildings, assisted living, housing for people with dementia and other special target groups, old persons' homes, nursing homes, and integrated projects.
