Innovative Digital Seniors Project wins State UDIA award

A giant 3-D art project that allows seniors to plan social outings with the click of button has won a coveted 2017 UDIA Queensland Mitchell Brandtman Award for Excellence.

Social Buttons was created for Caggara House, an award-winning apartment complex for over 55s, developed by BHC Creating Liveable Communities (previously Brisbane Housing Company) in partnership with the Queensland Department of Housing and Public Works.

The colourful project, installed in the lobby of the Mt Gravatt apartment development, features three over-sized digital buttons that light up with scrolling text when pushed, allowing residents to select from a range of social events and choose ‘where’ and ‘when’ using the buttons.

The most popular choice becomes that month’s outing and the details are automatically texted to residents’ phones.
