RADIUS, Design on Aging  

A service-oriented platform dedicated to enriching the post-retirement community life of middle-aged and elderly people. 2017 Fall in China. 



Something to say  一点看法

Living in the same community, neighbors rarely talk to each other, and the towering buildings seem to have built a wall in people's hearts, and many residents are increasingly nostalgic for the old "neighborhood" type of compound relationship. Young people may have little feeling because of their work, but retired or empty nesters who have nothing else to do face the closed doors of their homes and inevitably have a sigh in their hearts. Modern cities are becoming busier and busier, and many children are constantly on the move for their future, making it difficult to be with their parents. These are the inevitable results of development, and the relationship can never be balanced.


We cannot change this social phenomenon, so we can only start by widening the circle of life of the elderly after retirement. Relying on the community, we can redefine community and neighborhood relations by bringing neighbors closer together through the Internet. We can enrich the life circle of the elderly in just the right way, so that they can have a sense of security and happiness in their old age, and this is the radius.

住在同一个社区,邻居之间很少交谈,高耸的楼房似乎在人们心中筑起了一道墙,很多居民越来越怀念以前 "邻里 "式的大院关系。年轻人因为工作原因可能没什么感觉,但退休或空巢老人闲来无事,面对紧闭的家门,心中难免会有感叹。现代城市越来越繁忙,很多孩子为了自己的未来不断奔波,很难和父母在一起。这些都是发展的必然结果,也是现代社会永远无法平衡的关系。
