Young-Old examines contemporary architectural and urban mutations that
have emerged as a consequence of one of the key demographic
transformations of our time: population aging. Distinguishing between
different phases of old age, it identifies the group known as the
Young-Old as a remarkable petri dish for experimental forms of
subjectivity, collectivity, and environment. In investigating this field
of latent urban and architectural novelty, Young-Old asserts both the
escapist and emancipatory dimensions of these practices. Richly
illustrated with drawings, maps, and photographs, the volume documents
phenomena ranging from the continuous, golf cart accessible urban
landscapes of the world s largest retirement community in Florida and
the mono-national urbanizaciones of the retirement home of Europe on
Costa del Sol, to the Dutch-themed residential community at Huis Ten
Bosch in the south of Japan.
