Future of Open Building Conference 2015

When: 09 Sep

Location: ETH Zürich Hönggerberg Campus, Zürich, Switzerland

Architect Susanne Clase and human geographer and urban planner Lisa Wistrand from White Arkitekter will present their research paper Dialogue-Based Design Process of Housing for Senior Citizens at The Future of Open Building Conference 2015. The conference is organised and hosted by ETH Zürich.

The authors look at how dialogues with prospective tenants and professional actors, such as developers, district administration officers, home care, architects and builders through all stages of a planning and building process affect an actual building and the quality of the neighbourhood in the end. The paper discusses the early outcomes of a feasibility study for dialogue-based design processes when planning and designing housing for senior citizens. Read more.
