Abstract [en]

Japan is facing a great demographic shift, where by 2050 more than 40% of it's inhabitants will be over the age of 65 years. The womens emencipation from the role of stay at home mothers has allowed them to have careers of their own, although a good thing it does not leave a lot of room for starting a family in Japan's hard working climate. This new cultural norm has collided with the the long tradition of family care and Japan is now facing a large cultural collision, where there is a great lack of working solutions for child and senior care. The project suggests a prototypical intergenerational day care center for elderly and children in Tokyos dense now-rise residential neighborhoods. This form of care started being built in America during the 90's and has prooven to provide some of the best care availible for elderly and children.

Abstract [sv]

Japan möter i dagsläget ett stort demografiskt skifte, till år 2050 kommer mer än 40% av befolkningen att vara över 65 år gamla. Kvinnornas frigörelse från hemmet har tillåtit dem att påbörja egna arbetsliv och karriärer, vilket inte lämnar mycket rum för att starta egen familj i Japans hårda arbetsklimat. Denna nya kulturella norm har kolliderat med den traditionella familjevården och Japan står idag utan en bra lösning för barn- och äldrevård. Det föreslagna projektet är ett prototypiskt intergenerationellt dagvårdscenter för barn och seniorer i Tokyos täta lågbebyggda bostadsområden. Intergenerationell vård började byggas under 90-talet i USA och har visat sig ge bland den bästa vården tillgänglig för barn och äldre.
