dc.description.abstractGetting old involves a lot of changes in life. Family and social relations change and mobility can decrease. These variations require new settings, and of course special care. A nursing home is a place dedicated to help with this situation. Sometimes nursing homes can be perceived as mere institutions by society, and even by future residents. Inside, senior citizens are suppose to spend the rest of their lives doing the same activities day after day. How can we improve these days? Architecture can help. This project deals with architectural design of a nursing home located in an open green area in Blacksburg, Virginia. The project's focus is in creating a home that is related to its surroundings and the proximity to nature. Also deals with all the complexity of this kind of program, but tries to create a homely feeling, and an architectural environment that can adapt to the resident's physical and mental condition over time.en_US
