Age-Inclusive Public Space


How to design public space to meet the needs of people of all ages.
A kaleidoscopic publication aiming to inspire spatial practitioners to consider elderly citizens in the creation of public space.

  • Systemic changes

New public spaces tend to overrepresent attention to the young and middle-aged and the high-paced activities and sporty lifestyles associated with them, whereas elderly citizens are often neglected by contemporary urban design practice. Across developed countries, an increasing number of elderly citizens can be expected due to continual demographic change, and, at the same time, the movement of people from the countryside to city centers is expected to put more pressure on the spatial accommodations of the city. But despite the urgent need for a response, this development has not yet been paralleled by a noticeable change in the design of our cities and public spaces.
Conceived as a dialogue between practicing architects and contributors from a variety of academic disciplines, the volume presents a kaleidoscopic compilation of academic articles, interviews, essays, site visits, and more, that provide a holistic appreciation of the many facets of age-inclusive spatial practice.


The publication is compiled of a wide variety of contributions, from a range of academic disciplines. The book is richly illustrated to help improve understanding between academic research and spatial practice as well as to provide an inspirational perspective on space and ageing.

Departing from the stereotypical understanding of 'public space' referring only to parks and city squares, the book examines how a variety of public spaces and within them pubic appearances can be relevant to elderly in different living situations.

How are ageist attitudes (the assumption that a person’s age can tell you almost everything about his or her function, faculty, health, and appearance) created and reinforced in the built enviornment?

Age-Inclusive Public Space - A case study realized by dominique + serena in 2019, after extensive work in the local community, including participatory processes targeting the local ageing population. Strategies for broad based processes and methodologies are examined.

Gathering material from a range of field studies in different countries, different approaches institutions and their relationship to the closest environments are showcased.
