Progressive Architecture

Author: Rakatansky, M.
Type: Journal Article
Year: 1992


This article discusses the project "Prototype design intervention in the adult day care center", Parkside Senior Services, Illinois. The aim was to understand the relationship between architecture and the social and psychological space of older participants in an existing adult day care center and to enrich this environment. The intervention and subsequent findings (designs) are meant to be a model from this building type rather than a single project endeavour.
