OLD PEOPLE EVERYWHERE **
Town and Country: Housing clusters
Old people need old people, but they also need the young, and young people need contact with the old.
Create dwellings for some 50 old people in every neighborhood. Place these dwellings in three rings ...
1. A central core with cooking and nursing provided.
2. Cottages near the core.
3. Cottages further out from the core, mixed among the other houses of the neighborhood, but never more than 200 yards from the core.
... in such a way that the 50 houses together form a single coherent swarm, with its own clear center, but interlocked at its periphery with other ordinary houses of the neighborhood.
