Summary "This book answers the question, "Did the design fulfill its promise?" Authored by The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Design for Aging Knowledge Community, it features the results of post-occupancy evaluations for more than twenty senior living facilities. For architects, interior designers, landscape architects, and elder care providers, these evaluations are invaluable in distinguishing between what sounds good and what actually works."--BOOK JACKET.
