One of the greatest challenges for Australian society is the separation of generations which affects the quality of life for our seniors and engagement of our youth. Senior living facilities and education campuses are often designed in a way which maintains isolation and deepens the divide.
The federal and state governments call for new ideas to support participation and social interaction. The GrandSchools Project, is a federal funded project exploring integrated solutions for healthy intergenerational learning and living campuses across urban and regional Australia. The project is led by QUT, ACU, Deakin University and Fulton Trotter Architects in partnership with key education, senior living and built environment industry partners.
Born of an idea generated by Fulton Trotter Architects, the GrandSchools Project has been developed in partnership with QUT and ACU, to integrate research into healthy intergenerational campus planning and healthy learning and living programs.
