Abstract

Ageing in place is one of the answers to the changing needs of older global demographics. After evaluating alternatives for ageing in place, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns and the challenges of living in remote contexts, the need to integrate a Human-Centered Design approach to increase the usability of the Built Environment became evident. This literature review describes different methods and instruments that can be used for data collection in the context of a Human-Centered Design process for the built environment. Contributions of this research include the application of a user-centered theory of the built environment focused on the user experience.
