Better Homes for Older Adults: Improving Construction, Health, Care, Design, Technology & Finance

The convergence of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC), potentially game-changing assistive technologies and big data analytics constitutes a golden opportunity to rethink the outlook for ageing populations, especially in terms of housing.

Neighbourhoods of the Future captures the thoughts and predictions of a veritable 'who's who' of distinguished experts and emerging thought leaders. In these reports, you will discover novel concepts for disrupting construction, finance, social and business models.

Neighbourhoods of the Future is unapologetically optimistic. Here we look to the future for our older selves and ask what if?

With a view to better understanding the life course of older adults, and their relationship with the built environment, AAA is currently collaborating with 34 academic and private sector partners across 14 countries, as part of SHAPES, a 24 million Euro, 4 year, demonstrator project, funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme. SHAPES aims to explore interactions between older adults, technology and the built environment, with partners committed to collaborating, sharing data and informing development of a new ISO standard for multigenerational neighbourhoods and a voluntary code of conduct upon which strategies and solutions can be built.
