Senior Infrastructure

Designers & developers are making spaces friendlier for older demographics

Trend - City infrastructure is being adapted to accommodate the senior community through design-forward features that motivate activity, preserve health and safety, or simply allow for intermittent rest. These developments show a commitment to making spaces more accessible.

Insight - Many senior citizens are emphasizing their desire for independence, both in public and private spaces, and this prompts a demand that advocates for more accessible designs within the city environment. When this is taken into consideration and the accessibility needs of an older demographic met, consumers become increasingly confident and comfortable to be active outdoors, ultimately allowing them to combat feelings of loneliness which tend to be common for the senior community.
Workshop Question - How might your brand accommodate the older consumer's need for independence?
