Studio Joost Grootens designed the book 'Young-Old. Urban Utopias of an Aging Society' by architect and researcher Deane Simpson.

In his book 'Young-Old. Urban Utopias of an Aging Society', architect and researcher Deane Simpson examines architectural and urban transformations that are related to aging populations in the US, Japan and Spain. The book features an array of specially designed graphs, maps and drawings that supplement Simpsons highly evocative essays and photographic material. This October 'Young-Old', published by Lars Müller Publishers, received the prestigious DAM Architectural Book Award, in which the Frankfurt Book Fair and the Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) collaborate.
