Event description
A breakfast to hear and vote on the team pitches from the Longevity by Design Charrette: the future of senior living design.

About this Event

From aged care homes and retirement villages to…...what? What will living look like as a person aged over 65 in 2050?

At this free breakfast event, teams from the Longevity by Design Charrette held on 6 February, will pitch their ideas on the future of senior living design in the Redlands.

Teams were challenged to create visionary, innovative and highly connected design to meet the needs of future seniors in 2050. What did they come up with?
