K. AIA Design for Aging Review: Meet the Winning Architects

Go behind the scenes of the American Institute of Architects 2023 Design for Aging Review to meet the designers of two award-winning affordable senior housing projects. Gramercy Senior Housing, built on the site of a former towing yard owned by the City of Los Angeles, provides much-needed housing to older adults who struggle to find affordable housing in one of America’s most expensive housing markets. Stonewall House in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene neighborhood is the country's largest LGBTQ-welcoming senior housing development. Presenters will explore how architecture and design foster inclusive communities, how affordability and sustainability coexist, and how integrating senior housing into the larger community improves residents' quality of life.
