What does the future hold for seniors living in Australia, and how can we deliver spaces that truly meet the wants and needs of a new ageing demographic?

We are excited to announce that our Managing Director, Frank Bambino, will be a featured speaker at The Urban Developer’s Urbanity 2024 conference. An event for the creators of cities in the Asia-Pacific, the annual conference brings together industry leaders to explore the latest and greatest in sustainable, inclusive and technologically advanced urban environments.


Frank’s presentation, titled “Designing for the Seniors of Tomorrow,” will explore the rapidly evolving seniors living landscape. He will delve into the demographic shifts, global trends and innovative design strategies that will be necessary to meet the expectations of a new ageing cohort. Attendees can look forward to uncovering insights through an architectural lens on creating integrated communities that enhance the quality of life for seniors.

Frank’s talk promises to be an enlightening session for seniors living developers and operators committed to meeting the wants and needs of our ageing population. He will share key learnings from international models and discuss how these can be applied locally to transform the seniors living sector in Australia. He will highlight two local case studies of award-winning projects designed by VIA that demonstrate the successful incorporation of global learnings into local contexts.

Frank’s extensive experience and national portfolio make him an invaluable voice at Urbanity 2024. His session will not only address the challenges faced by the sector but also highlight the opportunities to design spaces that foster intergenerational connections and community engagement.

This is a unique opportunity to gain insights from one of the leading figures in architecture and urban development. Join us at Urbanity 2024 to be a part of the conversations shaping the future of our cities.

Urbanity 2024 runs from July 30 to August 1 at The Star on the Gold Coast. Visit the Urbanity website to find out more.
