Designing Cities for the Elderly

According to the World Bank, Malaysia can now be considered an ageing nation, with more than 7 percent of our population belonging in the age group of 65 years old and above. This number is expected to double by 2044, making our society an “aged society” by then. How can we accommodate this segment of the population in the design of our cities? Alice Sabrina Ismail, Director of Architecture at the Faculty of Built Environment & Surveying, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia joins us on the show to discuss the topic.
