"An architect, it seems, has to be an optimist and idealist. That by building we're somehow making the world a better place. But before you need buildings, you need people."
In Collage City from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 17, artist, designer, realtor and retired paramedic, Jean-Michel Reed, shares stories and perceptions of Buffalo, New York as an intimate outsider. Reed moved to Buffalo in 1992, working first as a paramedic, and later transitioning to both a designer and a realtor as the city attempted an about face. Cites are made first of people, and then within those individual people, of experiences. It is this combination of convergent and divergent experiences that construct the sociological makeup of place and city, which, in turn manufactures the physical landscape.

Many older adults are living longer & healthier lives. This shift impacts how society views elders & how elders view themselves. Ageing should be seen as a continual stage of development & growth rather than a period of decline. It’s time we begin to redefine ageing. It’s time “Grey becomes the new Black” suggests, Alison Benzimra.

Adrian Reith explains that Act 3 is the 20+ extra years we’re all going to have - in reasonable health - with higher expectations - that our parents didn't get, or just called ‘retirement’, pipe and slippers, decline… Our generation will want much more than our parents, and will be capable of more … but there isn’t a model. Yet.
