Cities Alive: Designing for Ageing Communities

Our new report identifies the specific needs of older people and proposes strategies and actions that cities can take to make communities more age-inclusive.

Future of

From higher education facilities to scientific research labs, our ‘Future of’ series provides analysis of the drivers shaping the future of our cities. It provides an examination of the key trends affecting the design, operation and user experience of building typologies and spaces across the world. The thought-provoking series is a call to action for designers, engineers and decision-makers to ensure the built environment is prepared for the future.

Cities Alive

Cities Alive takes a human-centred approach to rethinking how we should design and manage cities in the future. It provides an integrated focus on the experience of cities and the global challenges that are impacting the lives of everyday citizens. The award-winning series of global research and events explores the social, technological, environmental, economic and political drivers shaping future cities across the globe.
