Design for an Ageing Population

The demographic landscape of our cities is changing fast, as the cities grow and the population ages. But how do architects respond to the challenge? How do we go about creating more ‘age-inclusive’ spaces? And are there ways we can cultivate a design sensibility more sensitive to the desires and needs of an ageing population? Throughout 2014 The RIBA collated a vast amount of existing knowledge from architects, other built environment professionals, academics and other researchers about design for older people. This report presents the data base that resulted from the research.
