“BESiDE looks at the built environment and the ways that it can enable and disable older adults. We do this by working with architects and designers to develop tools to meet the needs of elderly people.

“My role relates to the co-design nature of this project. Co-design involves designers and non-designers collaborating to create an object that meets the needs of specific stakeholders. In this case the stakeholders are older adults, who will be involved in the project from start to finish.
