If there were a glitzy, razzle-dazzle competition for cheerleading captain of the Aging in Place movement — and given the boomer resistance to anything to do with aging, there certainly should be — Cynthia Leibrock, designer, consultant and Harvard instructor, would be a contender, strutting down the barrier-free, skid-free runway of a well-lighted arena;tossing an easy-grip baton in the air; blinding the judges with a smile and that fascinatingly taut face. In the marketing minefield of design for aging, Ms. Leibrock knows what many do not: It may be good for you, but if it doesn’t look good, nobody’s interested.
