  • Bathrooms and Kitchens, OH MY! Design Solutions to Support Graceful Aging

    LeadingAge California Annual ConferenceSoo Im AIA, NCARB, LEED AP May 21, 2019, Monterey, CA

    Bathroom and kitchen designs are often guided by the accessibility design guidelines and current trends in products.  But the current accessibility design guidelines do not address or support the physical challenges we face as we age.  Isn't it about time to take a step back, examine what we know about physical changes in the aging body, and find a design solution that provides a truly supportive and accessible environment? What different ways can we think about the appliances, fixtures, and other supportive devices in their location, access, and clearance to provide friendlier and supportive design solutions to the aging users?

    Perkins Eastman brought together design professionals that cross multiple disciples to discuss and address these exact issues from a fresh perspective and identify both challenges and design solutions that support aging adults in a graceful way. For the LeadingAge CA 2019, this session proposes to engage the larger audience who work and live with an aging population on a daily basis to identify and discuss the issues around the bathroom and kitchen design in a residential setting and compare the findings to those generated from the in-house charrette sessions.

  • Measuring the Effectiveness of the “Fourth Place”

    EDRA50BrooklynRebecca Milne, LEED Green Assoc.; Scott Fallick, AIA, LEED AP; Lindsay Fisher May 23, 2019, New York, NY

    Social capital is frequently cited as leading to more democratic and prosperous communities. Approaches to placemaking can improve social capital, whether it is within an office, a home or a social environment. When looking at offices in particular, there is proven value in investing in physical placemaking efforts. Since only 10-15% of a company’s overhead is related to building costs, compared to 70-80% related to staff, it makes sense to invest in these strategies in order to attract and retain staff. In our increasingly knowledge-based economy, the traditional approach to office-based workplace planning is experiencing a fundamental shift to hybridized environments that include elements of social, living and work spaces.

    This presentation will explore Perkin Eastman's research of the “fourth place,” an emerging space typology coined in 2018 by researcher and urban planner Arnault Morisson.
