Outline

This building aimed a new day service for senior in city who is actively open to the town community. Traditionally, day service for senior was closed to the society and was management/efficiency-oriented. This building tries to induce interaction between senior and local people by intentionally exhibiting senior's activity to town and by having them make eye interaction. Bidirectionality of watching city and being watched by city keeps the tension of daily life without loosing contact with society. Active lives of senior will become a part of city's daily scenery.
