Health Concern

Aging in Place, Social Isolation

Project Hypothesis

By rehabilitating an underutilized publically available space, the local older population can have a dedicated space to gather, socialize, and be active, enabling them to safely and happily age in place.

Project Strategy

Interdisciplinary design competition to propose a site-specific, compact outdoor recreational environment that is inclusive, safe, energizing, and dynamic for older New Yorkers.
