Fridays@4: Aging in Norway: Rob Wilson, L. Rudolph Barton Travel Fellowship Award Recipient

Master of Architecture candidate Rob Wilson was selected to receive the School of Architecture's 2017 L. Rudolph Barton Travel Fellowship award. With this award, he traveled to Norway to investigate how informed design and planning can facilitate dignified, healthy, and happy lives for people as they grow old.  In this Fridays@4 presentation, he will discuss his journey and share his findings from this exploration of the Norwegian eldercare model through three case studies, collectively generating a dialog between architecture, urban design, and the needs of an aging population.

About Fridays@4: Each Friday at 4pm during most of the academic term, PSU School of Architecture students and faculty gather together to hear from professional designers and architects, academics, visiting artists, innovators, and students in the program, with refreshments and updates from faculty and your student leaders. Fridays@4 is a perfect way to wrap up each week of intense creativity in studio, and get inspired for the productive weekend ahead.

We encourage attendees to bring their own beverage cup in order to reduce waste in Shattuck Hall.
