How can we arrange the physical places in senior citizen complex Den Hoogenban (in Rotterdam) in such a way that they can contribute to a pleasant and social place?
We share the results, interventions and explore the next step of Expeditite 55+ with you.
About the project
We have been inspired by the following themes: strengthening autonomy, facilitating pleasant ways of interacting and researching how this can be done in an inclusive way, for each based on their on values.
In Den Hoogenban, a senior citizen complex in Rotterdam, we have developed social and physical interventions that contribute to an inclusive and social place. Autonomy and self-management are central themes. We have developed these interventions in co-creation with the target group. We are excited to take you through the process, the results and the next step of ‘Expeditie 55+’.
The lessons and experiments for an inclusive environment are valuable for anyone who is concerned with social issues, diversity and where housing and care issues come together.
Expeditie 55+ is presented by echter ontwerp and Jip van de Beek. It's part of the 'For all ages' collective exhibition, curated by Marleen van Bergeijk.
