AbstractThis master thesis work consists of the study and the design of a potential multi-generational district in the city of Tampere, Finland. In fact, it focuses on the advantages and the importance of living in a mixed generation district. Developed in three main parts, this work begins with an introduction to the recent problematic of an aging population and the importance for each generation to live as a community. The second part of the work goes through a study of precedents. Designed during different periods, these precedents are analysed to understand the main goals of a co-living community. The last part of the work includes the design’s program and the design itself. The master plan is organized with four types of buildings. They all include blocks of apartments offering a diverse choice of living spaces that answer to the needs of each potential inhabitant, from single people to families with children. The district also provides facilities to increase the interaction of its inhabitants. Some of them are even open to public and offer the district an opportunity to be an active part of the city. The results of this work show that living as a community is advantageous to each inhabitant. By linking the needs, people learn to live together and benefit from a strength complicity.
