Social Innovation labs - Transformative Homes for Sensuous Dementia

A master elective taught at Eindhoven’s University of Technology, exploring how homes can be transformed to support its dementia suffering inhabitants. In making the elective programme together with prof. Hummels, the course aimed to show industrial design master students the importance of designing care in context, away from the studio. Expertise to help the students was curated especially for this purpose, emphasizing the importance of designing around a dementia patient’s strength, the experience of the here and now.
