Good to see an architecture and design firm (Coran) taking physiological ageing seriously
Thanks to Chuck Nyren for telling me about this company and what it is doing to understand the impact of physiological ageing on the design of commercial buildings.
You can read more about Coran and its work here.
The use of an ageing suit is great to make the experience of ageing a reality for young designers.
The downside is that you don't take a systematic approach to evaluating all of the touchpoints within a building and the effects of ageing.
An alternative way of deciding how age-friendly a building is and what needs to change is by using the AF Brand app. You can download a free version from iTunes, alternatively you can contact us to hear about the Expert version.
Thanks again Chuck. Dick Stroud
