In this mini-episode, you’re going to be hearing from Stephen Geason director of the Hobart-based firm, Cykel Architecture. Stephen has started to specialise in aged care living for people with dementia and is the fireside architect, or man-on-the-ground, for Tasmanian projects that need to achieve a high level of performance.
We don’t often think about it but where do you think you’ll live after you turn 70? Aged care design considers people’s connection to their community, allows for physical limitations, and also helps express people’s individual characters when their memories need a helping hand. In this episode of Hearing Architecture, we’re talking to Y E Ng, James Thompson, and Ana Nolasco about senior living design and how aged care impacts the buildings many of us will live in after our retirement.
In this Hearing Architecture mini episode you’re going to be hearing EmAGN committee member Kalyna Sparks speaking with Tom Dufficy who was a 2019 Multidisciplinary Australian Danish Exchange or MADE Scholarship winner. Tom was working in Hamburg Germany when this was recorded in 2020.
There’s no doubt that Australian architects do most of their work at home in Australia, but there are so many working on projects and in practices all around the world.
