Σύνοψη του βιβλίου "Home Design in an Aging World"

Home Design in an Aging World examines changing norms and social strains in an aging world, and looks at their implications for home design. Comparing the United States tosix other nations with growing populations of seniors, the text explores the ways that home-design is shaped by the interplay of demographics, social norms, and government policy and energized by the availability of new technologies and new building materials. The cross-national discussion follows the growing trend towards a more global understanding of social issues while covering the differences among the nations in terms of the effects of policy on the types of housing available, the design elements, and what people can afford. By raising important issues such as universal design implications, technology and aging in home design, and financing options and implications, this text sensitizes students and professional to unique challenges of designing for the aging.Features- Highlighted key terms and concepts- Study and discussion questions and cross-cultural comparisons at the end of every chapter to encourage critical thinking- An Appendix that explores accessible homes to more livable communities through real case studies. - Instructor's Guide provides suggestions for planning the course and using the text in the classroom
