JC IG Play Space @ JMC

Project Category

Project Background & Inspiration

Since 2019, JCDISI has been exploring “Intergenerational (IG) Play” as a socially innovative way to tackle “Double Ageing”, i.e. ageing population and ageing housing stock, at the community level through multi-disciplinary collaborations, prototyping and community co-design. In 2022, with strong support from the
Hong Kong Housing Society (HKHS) as their strategic partner and funding from the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, JCDISI is collaborating with HKHS and local partners to actualise the concept at Jat Min Chuen (JMC) with a view to develop a replicable “hardware + software” model for remodelling the public realm in housing estate through the IG play space concept to build social capital in the community and support older adults to age in place.

What happened in the project?

User habit studies and interactive engagement activities , such as tactical urbanism experiments and co-creation workshops, are held in collaboration with HKHS, Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups and JCDISI’s project team to gather community stakeholders’ aspirations and innovative solutions for intergenerational play at JMC.
