Who we are

The mission of the AIA Design for Aging (DFA) Knowledge Community is to foster design innovation and disseminate knowledge necessary to enhance the built environment and quality of life for an aging society. This includes relevant research on characteristics, planning and costs associated with innovative design for aging. In addition, DFA provides outcome data on the value of these design solutions and environments.

    The Design For Aging Blueprints is looking for volunteers to help gather information for our quarterly newsletter, the DFA Blueprints. We're specifically looking for volunteers to contact DFA members and discuss potential articles for publication in our newsletter. This is a great opportunity for a volunteer who is interested in senior housing to network with DFA members from all over the USA.
