New book: Ageing, Ingenuity & Design

This first offering, in a series of anthologies examining examples of ageing, ingenuity and design throughout the world includes offerings from Belgium, Brazil, China, Denmark, Italy, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Recognising the critical importance for autonomy and independence throughout one’s life is the cornerstone to increasing overall life quality through design. The universal need for inclusive solutions for all of the aspects of everyday life is a matter of deliberate design – the shared global goal of achieving content, healthy, and meaningful later life has become the critical challenge of our time. The book is co-edited by Dr. Yanki Lee, director of our Lab and Dr. Patricia Moore, mentor of the Lab.
