Age-Inclusive Public Space

New public spaces tend to over-represent attentions for the young and middle-aged whereas elderly citizens are often neglected by contemporary urban design practice. This publication is a dialogue between architects and academic contributors from a variety of disciplines: By collecting examples and showcasing architectural case studies as well as age-inclusive design methodology, it provides practitioners with inspiration, theoretical and practical knowledge on how to design public space to meet the needs of people of all ages. The drawings, photographs and illustrations of contemporary built environments, historic gardens, art installations and atmospheric landscapes cater to the reading habits of spatial practitioners at large.
