It has been widely been demonstrated that we are living longer. In fact, the population over 65 in certain countries now surpasses 15%, and within two decades this figure will be closer to one in every four. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that year after year requests to enter old-age communities is on the rise.

The body of work presented here in Contemporary Living Spaces for the Elderly is an espically pertinent complement to current research into one of the most crucial challenges facing today's professional architects: how to design attractive yet functional enviornments for the elderly in nations where the population is rapidly aging.
