Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0471284238, Hardcover)Winner of the 1994 Progressive Architecture Award for Architectural Research "Victor Regnier’s work is one of the few significant additions to the research on one of the most important architectural challenges facing the design professions today: how to design supportive and attractive environments for our nation’s rapidly-growing, aged population. His research and writing challenge the profession to reconceive these environments as enriched housing rather than health care institutions." Bradford Perkins, FAIA Partner, Perkins-Eastman and Partners "Victor Regnier’s new book should be read both for its approach to using environment-behavior research and for the lessons it has to offer about assisted living. The book is itself a prototype of inquiring process and design content. Its vivid examples and careful analysis significantly improve our understanding of the cross-cultural principals of prototype buildings." John Zeisel, Ph.D Author, Inquiry by Design: Tools for Environment-behavior Research. "As the nation moves towards the development of a comprehensive health care system, it is clear that a major component of the plan will be alternatives to institutionalization. Victor Regnier’s exemplary book clearly and cogently discusses the newest, most exciting, and most promising of these alternative housing/health care arrangements—assisted living. For such a new concept to receive detailed attention from such a seasoned researcher is fortunate indeed. It is must reading for professional and consumer alike." Paul A. Kerschner, Ph.D. Executive Director The Gerontological Society of America
