Longevity by Design brings together a range of people from across industry, government and the community to rethink the future of senuir living design. Participants work in diverse teams and collaborate with other participants to rethink the future design of real-world communities. In 2020, we focused on three areas of Redland City Council in Queensland.
We then give our teams time to go away and refine their ideas ready to present at our pitching day a couple of weeks after the charrette. At the pitching day, teams pitch their ideas to a panel of senior industry decision makers and experts, who then provide their feedback, as well as a range of awards (but not prizes – a charrette is a collaboration, not strictly a competition!).
