Senior housing in Sweden

By Leo Gullbring
In the last decade Sweden has experienced a surge in so called senior housing, apartments adopted for certain age spans, but without the harsh segregational pattern of the past. This new dwelling form might be seen as a revival of the ideals proposed in functionalist community housing of the ’30s, but the utopia of today is more contended, a plain nostalgia for the old village of preindustrial times.
