Designing a Retirement Community for LGBT Seniors
Hollwich lists a few reasons how designing a community for aging LGBT folks is different, including "[t]here is no classic family setting and the LGBT community operates with the idea of extended family. Friends can become brothers we care for."
To this end, the community is designed to be "pedestrian-friendly, culture-driven, and socially empowering."
"Although originally conceived for the aging gay community, the project was expanded to provide a new community experience for any creative citizens looking for a better way to live," writes Sun Joo Kim.
