Synopsis: This timely book proposes innovative and elegant solutions for the housing needs of our aging society. It is estimated that only 5 percent of the western hemisphere's current housing stock is suitable for elderly residents. Fortunately, today's generation of architects is working toward increasing the availability and variety of housing for older people. This volume details dozens of thoughtfully conceived projects from around the world that incorporate the needs of older citizens without sacrificing the personal and aesthetic choices we all make when choosing our home. These examples of single-family houses, communal-living projects, service apartments, and assisted-living residences enable their inhabitants to maintain--and even improve--their quality of life.

Book Description Prestel Verlag, 2013. Gebundene Ausgabe. Book Condition: Gebraucht. Gebraucht - Sehr gut Sehr gut: ACHTUNG!! BITTE LESEN!!

Ansonsten vollständig und in sehr gutem Zustand. Sofort versandfertig. - Netzwerke und intelligente architektonische Lösungen als Schlüssel zum Wohnen im Alter Die Alterung der westlichen Gesellschaft stellt die Industrienationen vor große Herausforderungen in sozialer und architektonischer Hinsicht. Bereits heute beträgt der Anteil der über 65-Jährigen an der deutschen Gesamtbevölkerung 20%, die überwiegend (95%) in privaten Haushalten wohnen. Netzwerk Wohnen. Architektur für Generationen liefert mit neuen, intelligenten architektonischen Lösungen einen entscheidenden Beitrag zu diesem Diskurs. Der Band zeigt 35 internationale Beispiele generationsübergreifender Wohnmodelle mit Schwerpunkt Europa und einem Ausblick nach Japan. Die Heterogenität der individuellen Wohnvorstellungen setzt sich im Alter fort, wobei der Wunsch nach Selbstständigkeit in den eigenen vier Wänden für die Bewohner im Vordergrund steht. Die Publikation präsentiert hierzu unterschiedliche Ansätze: vom Mehrgenerationenhaus im Quartier mit Nachbarschaftshilfe über den altersgerechten Umbau von Bestandsbauten bis zu spektakulären Neubauten. Die einzelnen Wohnprojekte werden ausführlich dokumentiert, großzügige Bildstrecken vermitteln einen lebendigen Eindruck vom Wohnumfeld. 240 pp. Deutsch. Bookseller Inventory # INF2000154730
