Global Architecture Exchanges Topic 3 - How will design cater for the forgotten generation (older people) post-COVID?

The Global Architecture Exchanges are a unique online series of talks brought to you by the RIBA in collaboration with other professional institutes of architects across the world. Join us for Topic 3 – How will design cater for the forgotten generation (older people) post-COVID?

Older people are not necessarily disabled people but may be more liable to risks. How can buildings be designed to meet their needs?

The principle of lifetime homes is a house adaptable to changing needs - pushchair replaced by bike or surfboard replaced by walking frame. Is intergenerational housing the solution?

How do architects in other parts of the world respond to this issue?

Join us and explore these ideas through the Global Architecture Exchanges Topic 3 – How will design cater for the forgotten generation (older people) post-COVID?
