Both aging baby boomers and families who want their children to grow up in age-diverse environments are increasingly interested in forming intergenerational communities, yet housing design and development are lacking.
Professor Siepl-Coates will talk about what architecture can do to provide such opportunities, and present international case studies and student projects. She has taught at Kansas State University since 1984. Students in her graduate level design studios study and develop ideas for intergenerational living. Most recently her research has focused on environments for palliative care architecture. Download Intergenerational Communities – Siepl-Coates
