Expert Speaker at RIBA Event: Architecture for an ageing population
On 21 January 2015, Andrew Cross, Director at DWA Architects Ltd, attended the event ‘Architecture for an ageing population’ as an expert speaker.
The event host, RIBA, invited Andrew to attend and share his expertise in the design of housing and accommodation for older people. The seminar explored the different types of living accommodation for older people and the myriad of factors that can influence and drive the architectural design solutions, both for new build and works to existing properties.
Andrew presented case studies, which provided examples of how good design can resolve the many conflicting issues that influence the architects design, creating a built environment that is of benefit to the people who will live in the completed development and to those who provide the care for them.
