Obtain that critical specialized information necessary for designing effective—and desirable—transgenerational products and environments...



Decisions based on myths or erroneous assumptions reduce the overall utility, effectiveness, and desireability of the final product or environment.

Our GUIDELINES and STRATEGIES for Designing Transgenerational Products—written to enlighten design professionals and students about the realities of human aging—provides an indispensible set of design guidelines and strategies for designing products and environments that accommodate—and appeal to—users of all ages and abilities.

The 113-page resource can help you ensure that the products and environments you design, produce or acquire will reflect a realistic understanding of the aging process.

  • Section One discusses how designers can respond to an aging population and presents an overview of aging from a transgenerational perspective.

  • Section Two develops the relationship between product design and the aging process by linking specific knowledge and information about both areas.

  • Section Three offers a transgenerational response by answering the "so what?" questions. That is, given the facts about the aging process, how can products and environments be designed or improved to accommodate people of all ages and abilities — without penalty to any group?


This unique set of design guidelines and strategies will help ensure that the products and environments you design will, indeed, be transgenerational.
