Design for Ageing - CDI Seminar
The role Design Innovation Research can play in the challenges of an ageing population
by Prof. Takemi Sugiyama (Adjunct to CDI) 28 Oct 2015
The aged care sector in Australia and Japan is facing a challenge of the increasing demands due to the rapid population ageing.
Designing and providing a living environment that is well suited to the diverse needs of older adults is an important task in addressing the challenge. Research evidence needs to be further developed and shared to inform the design of aged care facilities and other places for older adults. This seminar brings together researchers in the field of design for ageing in Japan and in Australia. They will present their studies on the design aspects of older adults’ living environments that can contribute to their wellbeing. The seminar, hosted by Centre for Design Innovation, Swinburne University of Technology, will be of interest to practitioners, researchers, and students who are involved in the design and management of aged care and relevant facilities.
