Description/Abstract

"Instead of isolating senior citizens form the community, my desire is to actively engage them with it; to facilitate the outside community to want to engage with the senior citizens. By combining the typology of the mall as an extremely public and interactive space with the typology of the monastery as the epitome of private living on a secluded site, one could imagine a community of commercial and residential spaces as opposed to the current model for elderly care."
