AGE IN PLACE
Loneliness is not a function of being alone but rather a function of how socially connected you are to those around you. The project investigates the importance of shared space, shared time, and shared values/commitments in the creation of a community.
The ageing population faces increased mental health issues from social isolation. Hence, the project prioritises an inclusive human experience through “spaces designed for the needs of children and the elderly, which will work for all ages.” The multigenerational typology will negotiate these needs to provide intergenerational facilities such as: vertically distributed adaptable communal spaces and winter garden, that would bridge the connection between the different ages and facilitate the progressive ageing of the population.
After all, human connections are for everyone!
