    Members of the National Institute of Building Sciences’ Low Vision Design Committee, which exercises a multidisciplinary approach to empower those with low vision in their quest to lead independent and fulfilled lives, will reprise their presentation from the 2017 and 2018 Environments for Aging Expo & Conference.  The team will share basic principles and some evidence-based guidance that designers can employ as they integrate building, interior, and lighting systems into supportive environments for the 17 million Americans who live within the spectrum of low vision.

    Learning Objectives

    • Examine rules and tools to design environments for those with low vision.
    • Compare new proposed standards with general design codes and standards.
    • Learn about lighting design measurements and considerations to help design healthy visual environments.
    • Share and contribute knowledge toward the development of a national standard for low vision.

    WHAT:

    Multidisciplinary Design: Creating Inspired Senior Living Environments

    This session was originally presented at the 2018 Environments for Aging Conference. 

    As senior living continues to become a multigenerational experience, designers must draw inspiration from other disciplines—especially hospitality and multifamily design. This session will revisit current design directions in these fields and identify how they have been incorporated into senior environments. Presenters will explore upcoming industry trends and discuss the ongoing process of translating design inspiration into the senior living communities of the future.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Identify current design directions across interior design disciplines, especially hospitality and multifamily.
    2. Explore the ways in which these trends are incorporated into senior living.
    3. Learn how to translate different aspects of design into senior friendly environments.
    4. Explore upcoming industry design trends.
