This monograph is based upon a workshop sponsored by the Institute on Aging and Environment at the 1994 EDRA Conference. San Antonio is the home of the first public housing facility specifically designed for older persons and the authors took the opportunity to reflect on the substantive and methodological issues that can be learned from Victoria Plaza. Frances Carp, who conducted the original longitudinal study, presents reflections on the early fray into Post Occupancy Evaluation and the lessons applicable today. Min Kantrowitz and Gerald Weisman present their comments and conclusions.
