Abstract [en]

When memory and logic fail us and it feels like the brain is slowly breaking apart, we need help with the physical details of our everyday lives. When planning housing options for people with dementia, we need to keep in mind that we are building for someone who will not be able to adjust the room according to their own needs. We need to step into that person’s world and focus on the smallest details. The room and the physical items need to remind the residents of what they usually do and how they do it. We need to think about how a physical environment can be adapted to people with severe cognitive failure. There is already so much technology that could be adapted and really helpful appliances. My task has been to search for details that can serve as guidance when memory and logic fail, and to look at how these can be planned for already in the construction of the housing.
