Karimeh Silave, Mohamad Shikh Bahaee


Paying attention to human needs in every individual's health cycle results in the healthy community. There is a group of people who are in need of support which are called elderly community. In architecture, not only the principles and standards must be defined, established and observed, but also should defined a certain specific spatial pattern to these individuals. Social sustainability in the broad sense, is synonymous with raising the quality of human life of the present generation and future generation, considering his or her talents and capacities and satisfying the needs of all classes. So, there is an indicator such as increased level of education, social justice and popular participation, etc. The architectural and urban environment is one of the most important elements in relation to the elderly's life. In order to maximize the benefits of the elderly in services and society, elderly life and their spirituality must be carefully analyzed. The present article addresses the needs of the elderly from a social dimension to the public space in a container for social interaction, and seeks to step up awareness and understanding of the perception of nature in order to design an appropriate space architecture for the social interaction of the elderly in their own housing spaces. The applied methodology for the present research is descriptive-analytic, and data collection is library method.
