Gretchen - Wonderfully inspiring project that we hope to learn a lot from as we embark on a similar venture with my Graduate students in the DAI Dept at SFSU on the theme of "Happy, Healthy, Wise Design for Aging in Place. We've lined up some very inspiring designers and community partners to contribute to this collaborative activity. We would love for you to share with us your administration, insight and learning outcomes from the project
