Watch UDI’s Richard Duncan deliver the keynote address for the San Francisco AIA Designing for Aging Adults Symposium. This two day event was an excellent opportunity to connect the benefits of Universal Design with maintaining our lifestyle and our preferred inter-dependence as we age. Richard discusses social ecology and health outcomes all the way to home technology.



The Ronald L. Mace Universal Design Institute is a non-profit organization based in North Carolina dedicated to promoting the concept and practice of accessible and universal design. The Institute's work manifests the belief that all new environments and products, to the greatest extent possible, should and can be usable by everyone regardless of age, ability, or circumstance.

As the Institute's sister initiative, Better Living Design is changing the way homes and home products are designed, built and remodeled to better meet the needs of everyone at every life stage.
