Dr Anuradha Chatterjee (Senior Researcher, PTW Architects) and Diane Jones
(Executive Director, PTW Architects and Adjunct Professor, Built
Environment, UNSW) are editing a peer reviewed volume titled the *Architectures
of Ageing in Place* for Routledge, who have exhibited an interest in our
initial, provisional proposal. To enable us to submit a complete proposal,
we are now inviting abstracts for chapters between 7000-8000 words
addressing the scope as follows.
The proposed edited collection aims to curate critical perspectives from a
practice-based research point of view, of buildings that are purpose built
and/or refurbished to accommodate housing and care needs of older people
aging in place in high rise/medium rise integrated communities, marking a
timely departure from age-segregated housing and living. The main reason
for writing this book is to identify design innovations (in line with
policy innovations) that have been made (across private and public sectors)
to enhance the wellbeing and quality of life of older people living in
integrated communities that continue to foster intergenerational dialogue
and exchange and advance one?s rights to the city as well as social
citizenship. It is expected that the book will contain 7-8 illustrated
chapters, presenting new insights backed by theoretical research and
substantial primary data; informed by diverse cultural perspectives on
ageing and wellbeing; and bringing focus to different geographic regions.
