Project Descriptions

 Transgenerational is a concept in design. It is a timeless way of thinking that reduces the restrictions of the physical and psychological, to serve the changing demands of people of every age, and to solve problems related to the lives of people who are set apart. This type of design changes one’s point-of-view to help people live together equally and sustainably.

         People are continuously changing through the process of aging, since their first day of life until their last. One’s physiology, psychology and environment also change. This causes everyone to have different experiences and perspectives.

         The Transgenerational concept is meant to be an innovative bridge helping pass on aesthetics and designs that enlarge function. They then serve the many generations which live harmoniously together. With the hope that, even though situations and statuses may be different, the things which are connected make people think of each other.
