The Ageing City: Are we Prepared?

Time: 6:30pm
Venue: Ritchie Theatre, Scientia Building, UNSW Kensington

Abstract

Population ageing is an international phenomenon also occurring in Australia with major social and economic impacts. This lecture will explore its implications for the built environment drawing on the findings of two recent research projects on older home owners and downsizing amongst older Australians. It will review housing and urban policy responses to population ageing and consider how well Australian cities are prepared to face such demographic futures.

Bruce Judd is Professor and Director of the recently established Australian School of Architecture and Design (ASA+D) at UNSW. He has a BArch(hons) and PhD in Architecture and has taught in the Architecture and Urban Design programs at UNSW for over 30 years. His teaching and research have focussed on the relationship between housing/urban design and human behaviour. He was the inaugural Director of the Australian Housing and Urban Research Centre (AHURI) at UNSW and Deputy Director of the City Futures Research Centre with which he continues to be associated. His recent research with City Futures has focussed on aspects of population ageing and the built environment having led three major AHURI funded research projects on older homelessness, older home owners and downsizing. He is also a Chief Investigator on two current ARC Linkage projects and one Discovery projects in related areas.
