The New Urban Village: A Design for Intergenerational Living

Any chance to mingle and collaborate with innovative design-thinkers is a valuable and enjoyable moment.  If you are in the Oakland, California area on August 26, 2009 a lecture and reception presented by the Regional Northern California Design for Aging (DFA) Committee is highly recommended.

Taube-Koret Campus

The lecture topic is the Taube-Koret Campus for Jewish Life in Palo Alto, California; a vibrant community that closes generational gaps, allowing family members of all ages to interact and thrive. This affordable community offers various housing types all within walking distance of  shops, gyms and learning centers, building a strong sense of community. The architect, developer and executive director from this project discuss their experiences bringing this community to life. The program will be followed by a wine and cheese reception.

Rob Steinberg, FAIA – President of Steinberg Architects
