As part of the 2019 AGM, the LIS hosted the most recent Reflections series talk, A Design of Ageing. Centered around the theme picked by the first Mark Turnbull Travel Award winner, Dr Amber Roberts, for her international research project that she conducted with her winnings from the award.
Dr Roberts spoke first, detailing what she discovered on her travels. Her full report can be found here and her talk can be viewed below:
Our other speakers were Professor Catharine Ward Thompson of the Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture and Director of the OPENspace research centre; Dr Matthew Lowther the head of Service for Place and Equity at NHS Scotland and Annie Pollock the Principal at Arterre and currently an Associate Consultant for The Dementia Centre, HammondCare. Each brought their own perspective on how we can better design our spaces to suit the elderly and an ageing population.
