Where will you live when your younger years are behind you? Will your city take care of you? How is it possible to design spaces for the elderly, and for those who care for them? Produced by the Canadian Centre for Architecture, the documentary examines how an aging demographic is reshaping architectural and social constructs, as well as exploring the role of urban design and policy in facing these challenges.
