  • Centers for Healthy Living: How a New Building Typology is Supporting Seniors

    EDRA49 ConferenceEmily Chmielewski EDAC June 8, 2018, Oklahoma City, OK

    An emerging trend in senior living design is to knit wellness services and amenity spaces together in a new building typology, aptly named centers for healthy living (CHLs). The convergence of the healthcare and senior living sectors, coupled with many seniors' interest in aging-in-place, is reshaping how the senior living industry designs for and delivers care and services to seniors. Over the last decade, CHLs have begun to crop up around the nation, on life plan community campuses as well as in the form of stand-alone, neighborhood or regional community centers. These programs are helping to bridge the existing gap between healthcare and senior living, going beyond the typical provision of clinic and exercise spaces to address all eight dimensions of whole-person wellness: emotional, environmental, intellectual, physical, occupational, spiritual, social, and financial. To explore the new CHL building typology, a design research study was recently conducted by Perkins Eastman to inform not only their own work but also the industry as a whole.

  • The Rockaways: Building a Resilient Transit-Oriented Community (Tour)

    A18: AIA Conference on ArchitectureEric C.Y. Fang AIA, LEED AP June 20, 2018, Queens, NY

    Explore the Rockaways, the site of a popular seaside resort in the 1800s. After the site was neglected for decades, large-scale development provided the badly needed capital for infrastructure improvements.

    The mixed-use, mixed-income development Arverne by-the-Sea (Perkins Eastman) was among the first private-public partnerships that not only created new residential communities, but also brought roadway and drainage infrastructure, spurring the economic development of the wider area.

    Join this exciting tour and explore Arverne's resilient design features, which helped it survive Hurricane Sandy. You'll also see post-hurricane improvements, including a new boardwalk (WXY Studio) and comfort buildings (Sage and Coombe Architecture). Boxed lunch included. (ET128a)

This tour will challenge visitors to examine the role of architecture and design in enabling history to speak to contemporary audiences. (ET137a)

  • Building for Density & Affordability: Creating Resilient Equitable Urban Communities

    A18: AIA Conference on ArchitectureTheodore Liebman FAIA June 22, 2018, New York, NY

    As global cities address the need for more affordable housing, little attention is paid to how these communities become socially and economically resilient. Amenities, including education, healthcare, retail, and open space are essential, along with civic engagement.

    Low-rise, high-density (LRHD) housing prototypes have introduced quantifiably better models for urban living compared to "tower in the park" models. Join this session and hear from an expert panel as they examine LRHD models around the globe and discuss the future of affordable housing and resilient communities. (FR407)

  • Holding Ourselves to Higher Standards: Healthy Materials Every Time

    A18: AIA Conference on ArchitectureTanya Mejia, Assoc. AIA June 23, 2018, New York, NY

    While architects wouldn't knowingly approve building materials that have negative effects on human health, unhealthy materials are nevertheless available in the marketplace. Therefore, due to cost or convenience, these less-than-ideal materials may end up in use on your projects.

    Join this seminar to explore how architects can commit to going beyond minimally acceptable legal standards and use only truly safe materials on every projects.

  • Imagining the Future of Integrated Facilities Operations at Penn State

    SCUP 2018 Annual ConferenceDavid Levo AICP July 17, 2018, Nashville, TN

    Few groups are on the front line of behavioral, operational, cultural, and technological change as much as facilities groups. Asked to do ever-more, Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) pushes the answer of “how”. Get a rare peek under the hood at how one of America’s largest universities envisions meeting the needs of students, faculty, staff, and administrators through integrated 21st century facilities operations. We will discuss how we re-evaluated current operations, what we learned from other complex campuses, and the new strategies we're adopting.
