The Intergenerational Centre is a new model of social housing for the elderly, that is, for senior citizens. This contemporary model is derived from anthropology, psychology, gerontology and other humanities research. The idea is based on the recommendation that the quality of human development is affected by the presence of all three generations. The aim of the centre is to connect intergenerational housing for older generations with that for younger generations by using spatial and programming concepts in order to spontaneously merge the knowledge, experience, energy, curiosity... the advantages of each of the three generations.
