Reframing Aging as Growth through Community

Min Na’s thesis tackles the inevitable, sometimes fraught process of growing old in a society ill-equipped for an extended human lifespan. “How can we gracefully embrace the transition as we age later in life? How can we be prepared for the future when we retire earlier than we anticipated? And, in certain cases, how can someone cope with aging alone?” In her project, Na explores architectural interventions to alleviate age-related socioeconomic challenges and facilitate dignified, inclusive aging.
