CPDI Africa feature: Aging in Africa, Ivory Coast Building

Location: Cote D’Ivoire
Cote D’Ivoire Architecture – design by HWKN Architects  

Aging in Africa sets out to be the first age-valued community on the African continent where the elderly can maintain a meaningful and healthy lifestyle in a comfortable and safe environment. It is a retirement community for Catholic priests that are excluded from the traditional, family based, model of elder care in Cote D’Ivoire. The architecture is shaped by deploying a holistic set of social, economic and environmentally sustainable theories pertaining to elder living and care. It is about architecture that does not just house caring, it is architecture as the caring device. Our hope is that it is an inspiration for a new breed of community that values the efficacy of spirit over efficiency of care.
