Aging urban populations challenge the underlying rationale of the city.  Places that emerged through the combination of productive know-how, now house large numbers of people too old to work or deemed so by labour laws or convention. They live in cities for cultural and historical reasons and interact to survive socially. How will the city adapt to this new bi-polarized ecological function: survival of the fittest and survival of the weakest?
