Gone are the days when being "old" equated with being in frail health, heavily dependent on medical care and financially hard up. Today the media portray senior citizens as being in the prime of life. Elderly people enjoy a high life expectancy and are highly mobile. They are avid consumers, and have the purchasing power to back it up. Nevertheless, life in advanced years, e.g. from 70 onward, has its own special framework.
In the category of universal design these draft projects should be designed for use by the largest number of people possible, with all their varying capabilities and qualifications. The watchword here is design for everyone, as opposed to merely "design for the elderly". In the category assisted living, the draft projects should be conceived of classical helping aids, interior designs and buildings for people with varying capabilities and qualifications.
This years competition is devoted to the topic of "life.live.work."
