Event description

Description

This talk, jointly organised by the Landscape Insitiute North East and Urban Design Group and hosted by Newcastle University, will be given by Diarmaid Lawlor, Director of Place at Architecture and Design Scotland and Rose Gilroy, Professor of Ageing, Planning and Policy in the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape at Newcastle University.

Diarmaid will be discussing Architecture and Design Scotland's recently published report “Town Centre Living: A Caring Place”. Our demographic future is one in which people are living longer and although this is undoubtedly positive, it also challenges us to think about how we ensure that we live not only longer but that we live well. The report puts forward 10 Principles of a Caring Place which place user needs at the heart of decision-making, service provision and investment in our places.

Following Diarmaid’s talk we will also hear from Professor Gilroy who will talk about her research which challenges the dominance of chronology and promotes building houses for all ages.
