Trailer – Where We Grow Older

Where will you live once you grow older? Will your city take care of you? How to design for the elderly, and for those who care for them?

The documentary Where We Grow Older looks at how the growing aging population is reshaping architectural and social constructs and questions the role of urban design and politics in facing these challenges.
From Barcelona to Batilmore, the film investigates two models of how care and housing can be reconceived in light of prolonged lives: public housing as part of municipal policies and infrastructure—where the city is the caretaker—and the creation of a new architectural model where a single building managed by private entities, prov ides care to both the elderly and their caretakers, effectively transforming the building into a city.
This film concludes a three-part short documentary film series and investigation, conceived by CCA Director Giovanna Borasi, directed by Daniel Schwartz, and produced by the CCA, to examine the ways in which changing societies, new economic pressures, and increasing population density are affecting the homes of various communities (What It Takes to Make a Home, 2019 and Where We Live Alone,2020).
