Juan Carlos Perez
JC grew up in the northwest Chicago suburbs with his three sisters, parents, and grandma. His intergenerational household and close relationship with his family sparked an interest in designing for the aging during his graduate career at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. While at UWM he received special recognition from the AIA Design for Aging Review. His master’s thesis project provided design solutions that would allow for lifelong communities to exist in suburbs by incorporating ideas of intergenerational housing, thereby allowing people to age in place.
In his spare time, JC can be found exploring the diverse Chicago neighborhoods and eating at his favorite restaurants with friends and family. He enjoys attending music and art festivals and the annual Chicago International Film festival.
