Intergenerational Civic Space explores possibilities of how Melbourne CBD’s elderly community can be meaningfully supported in society by transforming a traditionally closed-off facility into a transparent, civic, and active space suitable for residents, their visitors, and age care workers.
It proposes a strategy of intergenerational safe facilities to create a new shared space that reintroduces our older community to various aspects of society, and help people to reconnect with the others through its programs and facilities.
