The Center for Public Interest Design at Portland State University’s School of Architecture is hosting a design competition to explore new models in intergenerational housing. This competition aims to address ways of reintegrating an often-isolated aging population into active settings where they can once again thrive and lend their voices and expertise to the greater community. We see the university setting as an ideal vehicle to support such a model and respond to the increasing desire for lifelong learning and continued active engagement among our aging citizens. Therefore, we are seeking proposals for innovative intergenerational housing models that are sited on or near a university campus and provide desirable lifestyles for people of all ages.

This is an ideas competition intended to facilitate a dialogue on the subject of intergenerational housing and inform ongoing efforts in this field, so the scale of each proposal can vary drastically. Whether the design is a single home, a large urban building(s), or a series of public spaces/landscapes on or near a campus, our esteemed jury members are open to all approaches to this issue and we look forward to sharing your ideas at an exhibit and forum to be held in downtown Portland, Oregon in the summer of 2014.
