Simon Fraser University – Aging, Design, and the City
Cities across Canada are facing an unprecedented demographic shift as Canadians are living longer and in increasing numbers with the aging of the Baby Boom generation. This course examines the roles of urban and architectural research and design, urban and community development, and public policy in understanding and creating cities that are responsive to the needs of older adults who want to stay independent and engaged in their communities for as long as possible. It will look at some of the major past, present and future issues of aging in the city with a survey of local, national, and international design approaches and design solutions.
