Dutch Design Week: ‘Expeditie 55+’
The project ‘Expeditie 55+’ was presented by echter ontwerp and Jip van de Beek during the Dutch Design Week 2022. It was part of the ‘For all ages’ collective exhibition, curated by Marleen van Bergeijk.
During the project, we have developed social and physical interventions that contribute to a pleasant and social living environment within senior citizen complex Den Hoogenban. We created these interventions in co-creation with the target group. During the Dutch Design Week, we took visitors through the process, the results and the next step of Expeditie 55+.
The lessons and experiments are valuable for anyone who is concerned with social issues, inclusivity, diversity and where housing and care issues come together.
