Vandaag leven we in een unieke periode: nooit eerder was de levensverwachting zo hoog; nooit eerder vertegenwoordigden oudere mensen zo’n groot percentage van de totale bevolking; nooit eerder waren mensen fysiek en mentaal gezond op zo’n hoge leeftijd. Door de snelheid van deze demografische evoluties, worstelen onze maatschappelijke structuren, attitudes en beleidsmakers om greep te krijgen op de implicaties ervan. Wat hierin de rol kan zijn van ingenieurs is het onderwerp van deze presentatie. Ouder worden gaat gepaard met een aantal fysieke, mentale, sociale en financiële veranderingen. Het verloopt voor ieder individu anders, en wordt door elk van ons anders ervaren. Het begrip ‘oud’ is niet langer verbonden aan sociale markers zoals pensioen op 65. Ouderen reizen, studeren (terug) aan de universiteit, of blijven eraan verbonden ...

This article explores an approach to design research in which the development of design technology plays a key role. It presents the author’s Ph.D. research on the role of cases in architectural design. The research aimed at investigating the applicability of Case-Based Design (CBD) to the domain of architecture. To this end, the author adopted and confronted different stakeholder perspectives, one of which is that of CBD technology developer. By consequence, a considerable part of the research covers the design, implementation and evaluation of a CBD tool to support architects/designers. The research did not have a strictly instrumental aim, but wanted to provide insights for the field of architectural design on both a theoretical and a technological level. While the tool itself aimed at providing architects with valuable design suppo...
In analysing parallels between sustainable and inclusive design, the paper investigates reasons for architects' disappointing uptake of these approaches so far. A common reason seems to be the lack of knowledge that has the applicability required by architectural practice. Researchers produce knowledge on why and how we should accomplish more sustainable practices in building, which hardly filters down to practicing architects. Vice versa, the knowledge developed through architects’ design experiences hardly feeds back into academic research. Moreover, in case of inclusive design, the user side represents a valuable body of knowledge as well: through their specific interaction with buildings/spaces, users with disabilities appreciate qualities and detect misfits most architects are unaware of. If the uptake of sustainability and inclus...
