Long Term Living, via their Web site (www.ltlmagazine.com) asked readers to nominate and then choose the architects and interior designers who have made a difference in the lives of those residents living in long-term care facilities. In this article, some of the nominated architects and interior designers are presented. One of the nominated architects is Gene Guszkowski, AIA, Principal of AG Architecture. Guszkowski notes that AG Architecture got involved with the Greystone Communities in the late 1980s and then, in the decade of the 1990s, "rode the rocket" of assisted living giant Alterra Healthcare, building 120 facilities in 26 states. David Hoglund, FAIA, LEED AP, has come a long way from cardboard and popsicle-stick buildings. He was drawn to long-term care because of his lifelong interest in seniors. Other designers who are also nominated are Rachelle DeGeorge and Mary Inman of Studio 121.
