Young Old

2014


Young-Old is a new demographic group over 50 years old having a higher income, who retired but still stay in fit and wish to spend time for leisure in their second lives. This book explores their community villages all over the world and examines architectural and urban transformation for the rise of the new aging population. As several different kinds of maps and drawings were introduced to compare the communities, a consistent color coding was required throughout the book. The combination of vivid neon colors and delicate abstract patterns contributed to give a rich texture on the map and drawing surfaces.
