The Centre will also be a resource for these citizens as the stages of adaptation are not always linear, meaning you don’t always finish one stage and move to the next. Instead, the stages of adaptation can be more circular where you might progress in some areas while still experiencing challenges and barriers in others. This is especially true as one starts to age and the next generation, the children, move on to live as independent Canadians.
This development will amplify the goals and objectives of Centre to serve as an advocate and support system for these Calgarians as the stages of adaptation are not always linear. Biophilic design, efficiency, security, accessibility, and technology were the top design proprieties. The Centre for Newcomers' mandate to “Make Life Easier” was a key element of METAFOR's vision for this project as a universally designed community hub that benefits and unifies all Calgarians.
