This month’s Architectural Working Conditions features Design in the Hills, held in Rapid City. With busy schedules and deadlines, it is a great occasion when architects from firms across the state are able to get together to think creatively about design issues that affect our communities. The video below shows a clip of the design charrette this year which focused on design innovations pertaining to aging in place.
Check back to see a follow up from DITH presenter Leacey Brown, SDSU Extension Gerontology Field Specialist, whose presentation focused on consumer knowledge and preferences for aging in place in South Dakota.
