Integrative Ways of Residing: Health and Quality of Residence Architectural Inventions for Dwelling, Ageing and Healthcare AIDAH

The AIDAH environment intends to unfold cross-disciplinary research and implementation projects for a sustainable built environment confronting three major challenges for improved health and enhanced quality of life by developing integrative ways of residing. The diversification of demands on the housing market calls for flexibility and alterability adaptable to a resilient way of life. An ageing society requires new ways of residing with dignity and appropriate healthcare providing also good working environments for personnel. Profound changes in technical conditions for medical treatment demands a rethinking towards new healthcare situations of advanced care in residence to intensive care in hospital and patient hotels. The integration of architecture humanities research, sociology of residence and medical sciences intends to bridge a gap able to initiate cross disciplinary approaches towards new qualities in designs, care taking processes and healing environments providing new operational knowledge in close collaboration with stakeholders in society. International research exchanges will provide valid strategic support for decision makers in planning, building and medical services. The research team is focused on the Centre for Healthcare Architecture and the CIB W069 Commission Residential Studies hosted by Chalmers. The unified theoretical framework fosters projective architectural inventions enabling the realization of spatial situations for good care and new welfare.
