Living+ programme – Creating better living environments

 

A multidisciplinary research programme to create better and sustainable living environments. Presentation in the exhibition opening 24.2.2014, and a video screen in the exhibition.

Aalto University’s Living+ programme takes the WDC2012 Helsinki and Aalto University’s WDC2012 legacy further. The programme will be presented in the opening event of the Shaping a shared world exhibition in Cape Town. The Living+ platform will also be exhibited during the duration of the Shaping a shared world exhibition as Aalto’s legacy to WDC Cape Town 2014.

Living+ is a multidisciplinary research programme focusing on human-centred living environments. The programme draws from Aalto University’s research and makes it possible to plan, design and test human-centric environments on all scales, from housing, working, mobility, digital and physical services to care and wellbeing, leisure and social interaction.

Living+ focuses for instance on urban development, services on urban centres, city landscape and developing living models with and for active citizens. The human-centered living environments cover a scale from large constructed environments into e-services.
