Currently within the United States we are witnessing the largest aging population demographic of any time in our history. This is the "baby-boomer" generation; the Post-World War II babies which were born between 1946 and 1964. Babies no longer, these aging adults number 78 million strong and will change our country's very fabric. From culture & politics, to economic patterns of wealth distribution, there is, and will be, hardly a single facet of modern life which is not directly or indirectly affected by this large demographic. The government, as well as many industries and institutions, recognize the significance of this fact, but architects seem slow to respond to the needs of this demographic, or to recognize the vast amount of capital and opportunities which present themselves. We needn't look far to establish the needs and wants of this demographic and how it applies to architecture
