Description

The topic of “Late Life Urbanism” looks at how architecture and cities will be impacted in the future by societies that become increasingly older. According to Deane Simpson, an important group to consider is the “Young-Old” demographic, which corresponds to a shift from an ethos of care to one of leisure and entertainment. Other contributions include a photo-essay by Peter Granser portraying a large retirement community in Arizona, a range of urban interventions detailed by Chris Phillipson, an architectural project by Junya Ishigami for people with dementia in Japan, and Rafael Luna’s case study in Seoul on how technology will play a crucial role in improving elderly lives.
