Current issue: 9 – 2019

Autonomy in Old Age

This issue aims to bring housing for old age out of the ghetto of the institutions and to see it as an autonomous form of living that forms part of everyday social life and — like all housing — offers a chance to achieve an urban, architectural added value and to create new forms of living together — whether with people of one’s own age or in a multi-generational neighbourhood.
