In 2011, (after running the project that created Family by Family), TACSI’s Radical Redesign team expanded and took on a new challenge, ageing.
Love-in’s, Lobsters and Racing Cars documents the first stage of that project. It explores what great living means in late adulthood when, for 1 in 3 people, caring for a loved one is a defining factor. The work involved design research with 40 people living in South Australia, and defines four opportunity areas. In response to the opportunities defined in this report the team would go on to develop The Great Living Six, and prototype Weavers.
