Getting Old In New Ways

Penguin Books

We get plenty of books about seniors and living life well in our later years.  But getting one from an architect is something different. 

Matthias Hollwich's training and age combined to start him thinking about the structures designed for seniors--like nursing homes--and think he could do better. 

So he laid out his ideas in the book New Aging, ideas that range far beyond architecture and construction.  The author joins us for a visit on his upbeat book.
