In Collaboration with SUTD - Age Friendly Neighbouhood
Age friendly or ageing friendly? There is a difference. The concept of age friendly compartmentalises design precepts that regard a neighbourhood as specifically for a cohort of older people. Ageing friendly on the other hand considers designing for everyone; people of all ages as they age in their neighbourhood. In this project, the physical health, mental health, social and emotional health of residents in a study neighbourhood are analysed to help tailor and refine design solutions that are pertinent to an age-friendly neighbourhood of the future.
