Victor Regnier, FAIA — The Mind Behind Senior-Friendly Architecture

Have you been to one of the Jewish Home’s annual Sarnat Symposia? Over the last 13 years, the Jewish Home has amassed an impressive list of speakers on a vast array of topics. The 14th annual Sarnat Symposium is proving to be no exception.

One of our guest speakers in this year’s lineup is a USC professor named Victor Regnier. A Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, Regnier holds a dual bachelor’s degree in engineering and architecture, as well as a master’s degree in the latter specialty.

Over the last few decades, Professor Regnier has become one of the foremost experts behind housing for seniors. He is the only person to hold a dual appointment to a school of architecture and a school of gerontology.

At this year’s Sarnat Symposium, Regnier will be giving his talk entitled Innovative Ideas for the Design of Housing for the Elderly from Asia, the US and Northern Europe. For those interested in the future of senior living, this is a rare opportunity for a sneak peak at the newest developments from one of the most respected minds in that field.

If you would like to hear Professor Victor Regnier speak at the Los Angeles Jewish Home’s 14th annual Sarnat Symposium on Wednesday, October 26, 2011, visit the Sarnat Symposium webpage and register today.
