Going Gray... in Pau

Itinerancy at Les Halles de Pau

Exhibition presented from November 3 to December 1, 2022

The exhibition "Going Gray...Could co-housing for seniors be anticipating the housing needs of the future?"" is presented by the CAUE Pyrénées-Atlantiques from November 3 to December 1, 2022 on the first floor of Les Halles de Pau.

As France’s population is aging rapidly and elderly care facilities are increasingly being called into question, the “Coup de vieux” [Going Gray] exhibition invites us to discover new housing types designed by and for seniors. Imagined together with their future residents, these projects are inventing other ways of considering, financing, programming, and building housing units that meet the expectations of populations looking for alternative solutions and lifestyles that allow them to stay at home. Their desires combine the principles of mutual support and solidarity with forward-looking ambitions in terms of ecological construction and improved spaces.

The architects of Bond Society have analyzed the experiences shared by men and women who have launched, supported, commissioned (and sometimes even self-built) such projects, ultimately living there. New practices are revealed, providing both a source of inspiration and projection.
