- Updated Inspiration
In this video, architect Matthias Hollwich from the New York-based firm Hollwich Kushner introduces their prototype for an intergenerational skyscraper, “Skyler”. Designed following the principles outlined in Hollwich’s recently published book, New Aging ‐ Live smarter now to live better forever, the building encapsulates a cross section of society where people can live fulfilling lives from birth to old age. It includes a business continuation center for the 65+ community, daycare centers for small children, an infirmary, and a health center where inhabitants can stay fit and nurture an informal support system with neighbors, family, and friends.
