  • Leben und Wohnen im Alter: Architektonische und by Dr. Klenter

    Dieses Buch zeigt am Beispiel der Entwicklung eines modernen geriatrischen Quartiers, dass Architektur im städtebaulichen Kontext einen eigenständigen Beitrag dazu leisten kann, die Probleme des Alters und deren gesundheitliche und sozialpolitische Auswirkungen auf die heutige Gesellschaft anzunehmen und zu bewältigen.
